John Jeannot was a life long Central Area resident and very active community organizer. He was one of the first people I met when I moved to the neighborhood in 1998. For as long as I’ve known him he has been in the thick of whatever was going on in the neighborhood. He was one of those few people who really threw himself into making the community that he loved the best that he could.
Following I’m including the text of an email from Bill Zosel of the Squire park community council, with information about John’s funeral and reception to be held Tuesday Sept 2nd at 4pm at the Immaculate Church at 18th and Columbia.
Subject: John Jeannot’s funeral Tuesday
Many of you have heard the sad news that John Jeannot has died. He and his daughter Sophie wanted to make sure that all of his neighborhood friends knew of his funeral, to be held Tuesday September 2 at 4:00 P.M. at Immaculate Church on 18th and Columbia (across the street from John’s house.) There will be a reception afterwards.
An obituary, more information, and some nice pictures of John and his family are at www.asacredmoment.com
John’s work to make the community better was an inspiration to all of us. Our friend John will truly be missed.
