Chairman's Corner

Jesse Oxendine

Jesse Oxendine, 325 GIR, 1926 - 2017

It is with much sadness that I write this message. Our Chairman, Jesse Oxendine, passed away on February 10, 2017.

I think the best way to describe his life is to read his full obituary here in the Tow Line and then everyone can see what a great and caring person he was.

I did not get to know Jesse until later in life when our Association was formed. He became active in it and eventually was elected Chairman as you all know. We became acquainted and eventually good friends. Jesse was a real "go getter" and his enthusiasm helped make the Association great.

Jesse, I salute you and was honored to have been your friend.

I also want to let you know that Bob Bridge has accepted the Chairmanship of the Association along with continuing his duties as Secretary. Bob is very capable and knowledgeable of the workings of the Association.

I will stay on as Vice-Chairman unless there is someone out there that would be interested in holding an office. Let us know if you are.

Good luck and stay well,

George Steward, Vice-Chairman
