My condolences goes out to her family.  Dick please let me know where I can send my thoughts

I am sorry to have to tell you that our friend Jeanette McAllister passed away at a young age.  She was a very fine human being and have generously offered her time to others.  She was one of the two Resume Doctors on the Employment Committee, and did a lot of work with individual blind people.  One of her greatest successes was helping a young woman named Kelsey find a job, and she took great pride in Kelsey's later accomplishments.  We will miss her a lot.


Dick Davis, Chair

Dear Committee Members,


I was shocked to read this.  Jeanette is gone.  I had no indication of any illness, so it looks sudden to me.  We never met face to face, but we were friends for years.  She worked hard and would do anything to help other blind people.  Her obituary is attached.


We just lost Jerry Whittle, and Arlene Hill is in her last days on earth.  Both had worked at the Louisiana Center.  Jerry's obituary came out earlier  on nfbnet.  Please include all three of them in your thoughts and prayers.


Take care, all of you.  Stay healthy.


Dick Davis

I am sad to share the passing of  Jeanette McAllister. She was an active member of the At Large Chapter, and very engaged with the NFB Employment Committee, and a member of the State Rehabilitation Council. She was the primary Resume Doctor for the 2017 NFB Employment Seminar, reviewing over 50 resumes for our members in advance of the Job Fair. She worked with students and adults in one on one and classroom settings. She was warm, funny and generous with her time and advice. She will be sorely missed.

Her obituary along with funeral details can be found below.
