JRF Mourns Death of Longtime Staffer Sheila Sykes

JRF Mourns Death of Longtime Staffer Sheila Sykes

The Jackie Robinson Foundation is sad to announce the passing of long time JRF employee Sheila Sykes following a brief illness. Sheila joined the JRF family in 1994 as an intern and was soon hired full time as Program Associate. For fifteen years, Sheila admirably served as a surrogate mother, mentor, and friend to hundreds of Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholars. Scholars and staff alike were recipients of her kindness, warmth and humility. She will be deeply missed.
