Jennifer Hughes, NS3O, Silent Key

We are saddened to report that River City ARCS member Jennifer Hughes NS3O, formerly KJ6YLS, passed away suddenly in her sleep in a Phoenix, AZ hotel room on August 31.

Jennifer was on vacation doing her favorite thing--riding her motorcycle (she was a member of the Capital City Wings)--about to embark on the 3FlagsClassic again, riding all the way from Mexico to Canada. She had just arrived in Phoenix to visit a friend following a long motorcycle trip. Her friend found Jennifer in the hotel room bed. She had otherwise been in good health.

Jennifer was a U.S. Navy veteran, an active member of the River City ARCS, the Samuel F. Morse ARC, ARES and other amateur radio groups, and served as a Volunteer Instructor and Examiner.

A Celebration of Life event will be held on Sunday, September 18 10:30 am-12 noon at 3511 Ronk Way, Sacramento, CA 95821 with further details at https://www.facebook.com/events/960797267382008
