It is with great sorrow that the J/24 Class Association shares the news of Reid Stava’s passing on Saturday, March 25. He passed away at a cancer center in Rochester, New York. Reid loved J/24s and was a well-known supporter of the Class with his willingness to assist in providing technical information, including measuring and serving as a race officer at many District 7 regattas. He most recently served as the USJCA Technical Chair. Reid was highly respected by his peers in the Class and will be greatly missed. Reid’s obituary is available at http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/democratandchronicle/obituary.aspx?n=reid-james-stava&pid=184793571&fhid=13382.
