Another Life Taken Too Early

10-30-2012

Cancer doesn't discriminate. Your lot in life has no meaning to this deadly disease and how hard you fight it doesn't guarantee you will beat it. The radio industry has lost another young life to cancer. 49-year-old Cumulus Market Manager Greg Jessen has died after a courageous battle with cancer. Jessen had more than 30 years in the business including on the air, in sales, and as a Market Manager. Jessen has two young sons, Kyle (13) and Andrew (11).

Greg's radio family in Green Bay has set up a fund for the kids called the "Kyle and Andrew Jessen" fund as a way to honor Greg's memory and provide for his sons. Checks made payable to the fund can be mailed to:
Cheryl Bellin
810 Victoria Street 
Green Bay, Wisconsin (54301).

Funeral services will be held on Friday at 10:30 a.m. in Malcore West Funeral Home on West Mason Street in Green Bay. For more information about the fund contact Jeff Schmidt at jeff.schmidt@cumulus.com
