Jerry A Waldvogel
December 24 1953 - May 30 2009
|Dear Members of the BSCS Community:
It is with profound sadness that I share the news with you that Jerry Waldvogel died unexpectedly on 30 May. Jerry was a long time friend and supporter of BSCS, most recently serving as the Chair of the Board of Directors since 2006. Prior to becoming chair, he served as a board member from 1993-1999 and again from 2003-2005. His dedication to science education, and particularly the teaching of evolution, was unparalleled.
Most importantly, Jerry was an amazing human being who lived his values in all that he did. These values included respecting others, acting with integrity, honoring his commitments, and maintaining a sense of humor. As a result of living these values with authenticity, Jerry was loved, respected, and admired by those who had the privilege of working with him. He made BSCS a better organization - our lives and work are forever changed because of his influence. We will continue to honor the values that Jerry embodied through our work.
If you knew Jerry and would like to leave a message for his family and colleagues, visit www.jerry-waldvogel.virtual-memorials.com. If you would like to honor Jerry's memory, the family has asked that donations be made to BSCS or to an education fund for his daughter, Sarah (Sarah Waldvogel Education Fund, BB&T, 1070 Tiger Boulevard, Clemson, SC 29631).
This wonderful announcement went out to all Jerry's friends and colleagues at BSCS on Tuesday, June 2nd.
