  • Lisa Hansen

    We were very very saddened to learn that long-time JCAC member and recent Club Treasurer, Lisa Hansen, passed away in December 2021 after battling breast cancer for 5 years. She was passionate about agility and was always seen helping out and competing at our trials, along with her husband Mike and their dogs. She is greatly missed by all who knew her. Our deepest sympathies to her family and friends. RIP Lisa.
