The board would like to express our love and our appreciation for all that our long-time member John Dycus has done and continues to do to support us, journalists and journalism.
We are saddened by the death of John’s mother, Jennie, who died earlier this week, and we would like to extend our condolences and support to him during this time of grief.
Without John Dycus’ dedication to the Fort Worth Chapter of SPJ, this chapter would not be the strong, active chapter that makes a difference to professionals and students today.
His gracious and talented mother Jennie supported him in all his endeavors, and she was admired and loved closeup and from a far by many of John’s colleagues, their family and friends. She will be missed by so many, especially her son, John, who treasured her greatly.
With love and admiration,
President Yamil Berard
