The Foundation is proud to be the recipient of multiple generous gifts in memory of Jet Mitchell. We asked her partner, Lee Margulin, to tell us a little about Jet, and he shared this with us.
"Jet Mitchell loved living in Las Vegas. She moved to Vegas in the early 90's, became a recruiter in the IT community, earned her law degree at UNLV and eventually found her calling as a business professor at the College of Southern Nevada. An avid runner, Jet ran a half-marathon in all 50 states. Her passions in life were travelling, reading mystery/crime stories, teaching and being a representative for breast cancer patients like herself. One of her last requests was for her friends and family to continue to support the Las Vegas-Clark County Library Foundation to thank them for the entertainment and solace that the library provided her throughout her life."
We are so honored to have played a role in this amazing woman's life, and would like to thank the following family and friends for honoring her memory through their donations.
