RIP, Chad. May 24 by Jake

It is with great sadness that we pass along some news about one of our fellow aluMMni. Chad Rhodes, class of 2011, passed away at his home this past Sunday, May 22.

Chad was an active MMer throughout his time at JMU – between wrench days, autocrosses, NASA track weekends, mountain cruises, Top Gear nights, and the occasional party, Chad was always around with his tan Pontiac WS6, a smile and some infectious laughter.

His obituary may be found on the Daily News-Record site. Madison Motorsports will be collecting donations via PayPal, which will be sent along from the club to Relay For Life per his family’s request.

To make a donation, please send to my personal PayPal account by this Friday, May at 27 at noon.

In speed and safety,

Jake Thiewes
President, 2009-2011
