A service to pay tribute to the life of Brett Jarolimek has been scheduled for Monday (10/29).
The event is open to the public and will be held at 6:30 pm in the commons area of Pacific Northwest College of Art (1241 NW Johnson), where Jarolimek graduated in 2003.
Organizers say the service will be a place for people to get together and share their thoughts and memories of Brett.
This has been a very difficult time for PNCA. The small, close-knit school was already coping with the loss of Tracey Sparling, who was a student at the time of her death on October 11th.
On Saturday, a group of Brett’s friends plan to attend his funeral which will take place in his hometown of Grangeville, Idaho.
Brett will also be remembered during this weekend’s Cross Crusade race. Organizers say there will be a ceremonial lap around the course before the singlespeed race, led by his close friends and Bike Gallery teammates.
*A memorial ride has also been planned for Monday prior to the gathering at PNCA. Meet at the NW Thurman Street entrance to Forest Park between 4:30 and 5:00pm (ride leaves at 5:00pm) to ride out and back on Leif Erickson Drive. (This is a fire access road and is not fully paved. Slick, narrow road bike tires are not recommended).
