Here is the Facebook post of Sarah Mills, our General Manager, in response to the tragic news:

“It’s hard to say goodbye to someone.  I will miss you so much, your smile,  your laugh and your craziness. JHH will not be the same without you. You have shown all of us we are not promised another day.  If I could turn back the clock 24 hours, I would! 
I love you!!!!!! Fly high, don’t give God too much trouble… lol”

Words can not adequately express our condolences and our hearts are very heavy.  Our prayers go out to his family during this time of loss.
