    Robbin Thompson lost his 15-year fight with cancer late Friday night. He was at home with family and friends. Virginia – and the world really – lost too. He endured many lengthy treatments, with devious side effects, but rarely if ever complained. By all accounts, he faced his illness with courage and his well-known sense of humor. In a newsletter this year he talked about the battle and his decision to take another shot at beating cancer.

    W. Scott Street 1944-2015

    All of us at JAMinc mourn the loss of our fellow board member and dear friend Scott Street, who died February 1st after a brief but brave fight with a rare cancer. As an attorney, lover and supporter of music and dedicated banjo player, Scott has been an important part of JAMinc’s mission since its inception and we will sorely miss his wise counsel, warm smile and abiding love of the five-string.
