I only had one trip with him, Chick-On and Basilbop, but it was a great one. I’ll always remember it and him. He truly loved Yosemite.

I never met him but it was clear from his presence here that he loved the place dearly. Always very sad when we lose such a dear friend of Yosemite.

So sad to hear this news. I didn't know JR other than via stories of trips told by Chick-on., but I know that he will be missed.

Hi, this is JRinGeorgia's brother responding from his account.
Thank you chick-on for creating this post.
And thanks to all of you for your heartfelt and loving words. Yosemite was a special place for JRinGeorgia, but it was his whole Yosemite/backpacking community that really stood out.
Much Peace and Love to you all!
