Jay Walljasper

A year ago we lost Jay Walljasper, our dear friend of many years. He was an inspiration to all of us in the placemaking movement. As a writer and editor, he gave deep meaning to our images and wisdom about why social life is the core of community life. Today we still try to imagine how he would have responded to our stories as we develop them. In this way, we still feel his presence and guiding hand.
