The members of the National Capital Squash Board of Directors are greatly saddened to announce that Jeremy Barnes passed away on July 1. Jeremy was the beloved son of Rod and Connie Barnes, brother to Jacqueline and a dear friend to our squash community.
Rod and Connie have told us that while they grieve that Jeremy’s life was marked by persistent illness and tragically cut short, we should console ourselves with the fact he still managed to pack more in his 23 years than many would dare in a lifetime, and that now the struggle with his difficulties is over, he is finally at peace.
In Jeremy’s memory, the Jeremy Barnes Memorial Fund has been set up to provide perpetual yearly assistance to worthy recipients who wish to learn and play squash.
