Episode 55: Tribute to Jerry

This episode is a tribute to Dr. Gerald Evans, who passed away in January of 2023. When Leadership Montana was founded in 2003, Jerry served on the original organizing committee, and then as a member of the Board of Governors for ten years, before becoming lead trainer in 2014. There is not a single Leadership Montana class that has not experienced his impact and influence.

The episode begins with Chantel Schieffer, who shares the speech she gave at Jerry’s memorial service on the University of Montana campus on February 11, 2023. Next, various friends, family members, colleagues and students reflect on Jerry’s life and the memories they shared with him. Many of these reflections were recorded in the hours just before Jerry’s memorial service. Leadership Montana sends a special thank you to all those who contributed to this episode.
