LINES FROM LINDA GREENVILLE KENNEL CLUB HONORS FALLEN HERO
SC Rep. Jason Elliott, Linda Ayers Turner Knorr, and Greenville County Sheriff Hobart Lewis
Sergeant Conley Jumper
When then GKC President Roulette brought Jumper’s request to the GKC membership, the vote was unanimous to join forces. Club members envisioned this as a perfect partnership. Thanks to Sgt. Jumper, the relationship has contin- ued to grow tremendously! Today, Blake Roulette is joined by AKC Judge Bob Vandiver, also a former Club President and Show Chairman (and just about everything else), as liaisons to the Sheriff ’s Department. The K-9 offi- cers are included in most every aspect of the club; supporting shows, present- ing programs for meetings, participat- ing in club events, and even bringing their wives to participate in the annual Christmas parties. The club responds to their needs, purchasing dogs, equipment, training, etc. Sgt. Jumper created a match made in Heaven and this year, the club honored him with a very special ceremony, dedi- cating their shows to him.
Thousands of people attended Sgt. Jumper’s funeral service at Greenville’s Bon Secours Arena.
Jackie and Stewart Mathis, shown here with Kat Jumper, were instrumental in planning details of the ceremony.
