Comrades, For those who may not have heard, we have lost a fellow paddler this week. Jill Skivington Jackett was struck by a car this past Thursday while running. Jill was an accomplished runner who was just getting the canoe bug. She always had an infectious smile which expressed how much she loved life and everything she set her mind to. She was a high school teacher who directed the high school plays, coached track and cross country, was actively hiking the high peaks and on the fast track to becoming a 46er! She has competed in many marathons, was the first woman finisher in the 2008 Rochester Marathon and recently had a top finish in the NYC Marathon. Jill lived life to the fullest and will be deeply missed.
For those wishing to remember Jill, a celebration of her life will be held on Wednesday December 6th from 2-5 PM at:
The Genesee Country Village and Museum
