    I am so sorry to hear of Ken’s passing. I worked with him at IJP School and he was the absolute BEST! Always had a smile on his face. May he Rest In Peace and I hope that he will be golfing in Heaven!

    Please accept my sympathy and prayers. Ken was wonderful during his time at IJP. We worked very hard but always with a smile.
