TCSD Remembers JJ

**Update: The date for the memorial will be March 7th at DeAnza Cove. Details to follow**

It is with deep sorrow we report the passing of our good friend and long-time TCSD member and volunteer Jonathan “JJ” Jefferson.  As many TCSD members know, JJ was diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago.  At that time, his doctors gave him 10 months to live.  JJ’s response: “watch me double or triple that!”  JJ made good on his promise until very recently when a suddenly aggressive recurrence of his cancer landed him in Hospice care on January 22nd.  Even then, when his doctors had said he potentially had only hours or a handful of days left, JJ fought on for another 11 days before peacefully passing away in the afternoon of February 2nd.

TCSD Conversation by Craig Zelent (From December 2012)

I had the chance to talk triathlon recently with the Tri Club's Jonathan Jefferson.  JJ's most visible position with the TCSD was as our Beginner Open Water Swim Coach, but he represents the true spirit of the TCSD as he always seems to be there doing the "heavy lifting" as a volunteer whenever needed.  Please join me as we get to know this great guy.
