Thank you, Denise,  for bringing this sad news. I always admired and looked up to him through the years. I share the sentiments about Mr. Omvig. He had a great life, working hard in the NFB at all times. Doctor Jernigan recognized Mr. Omvig as a tremendous asset to all of us in the Federation. He often represented us in the world of the National Industries for the blind activities, and was well equipped to help in all facets  of our movement. I learned a lot from him, and he was a good writer of material for all of us to help us along the way.  

Condolences to Sharon and the rest of his family. He will be missed.

It is with heavy heart I let you know of the passing of Jim Omvig. He was a friend and colleague to many of you.  He contributed much to the NFB. He came to Washington several times to present to us and to attend our conversation.  No arrangements have made at this time. You will be informed as we get more information.
