With Deepest Sympathy

It is with great sorrow that we inform you of the passing of Henry Jumonville, the husband of Gerri Jumonville, who served from 2004 to 2006 as Forum Chair, and for many years before that as Forum Treasurer. Through Gerri’s activism, Henry became a wonderful friend to many of our members, and to our organization, and will be greatly missed. We express our deepest sympathy to Gerri and to their family. Gerri lovingly cared for Henry during his battle with cancer, diligently attending to a multitude of responsibilities. Her fortitude and devotion is an inspiration to all of us.  The funeral will be Monday January 7 at 10am at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home.

We also mourn the passing of Jim Kellogg, who was a tireless advocate for LGBT equality and HIV/AIDS issues in New Orleans in the 1980s and 1990s. Jim was one of the first attorneys in Louisiana to handle AIDS discrimination cases, was very successful in obtaining fair and equitable treatment for his clients, and was one of the founders of AIDSLAW. We express our heartfelt condolences to Jim’s spouse Joshua Whitehouse and his family.

With Sympathy,

Randy Evans
Forum For Equality PAC, Chair
