Sad News from Rochelle, Ashton, Mount Morris, and California
June 3rd marked the passing of Laura Harper (Judah) who represented us locally and all the way to the Senior Nationals.  Also, Myrtle Loggins, mother of John Loggins, first year member of the NCIJA & a key instructor for our team.  Most recently we became aware that Doug Rude, early NCIJA Board of Directors Member and father of International Medalist Kevin Rude, died 7/16/04.  Doug's generosity to the NCIJA included sponsoring countless pig roasts that we'll always remember. 
On July 19, early NCIJA member Rodney Kepner died.  Rod's brother Jeff Kepner was a founding leader of the NCIJA and the support of Rod & Jeff's parents was essential for us making it through that first year. 
Our sincere sympathy goes out to each of the families in their time of loss.
