A Great Fan Departs

I thought there might be some of your readers who would like to know of
the passing of my grandfather, Bill Jessup. He was a 1939 graduate of
Duke University and played both football and baseball. Among his many
accomplishments, he became a legend as president of the Carolina League
from 1957-1969. He loved Duke University athletics, he was a Legacy
Fund member, and you can find his name prominently displayed at Jack
Coombs Field, the Schwartz-Butters Center, the Duke University golf
course, and the press box at Wallace Wade. He passed his passion on to
me and my brother, and we will be forever grateful.
