Not sure how many folks are here that have been here for 8+ years but if you have been you probably remember Jopa! He was our resident old man who went to Prime but experienced a ton of hardship getting into the program due to medications. He was always cracking jokes and had a great personality (albeit a bit grumpy but that comes with age).

Unfortunately he passed away last week. He's in Heaven now.

Jopa's Profile

Jopa was ONE of a KIND. He was still around, when I first joined...or maybe I was 'read only?' with my Amery / AoL account. What a special soul, with all he'd contributed on here...and the industry in general.

Thanks for sharing, Daniel B. ~ I didn't know him like YOU or the others from long ago, but I sure enjoyed his energy, within TT.

Sentiments to his family, and good sir Jopa . . . that 'final ride' is the best, they say.

~ Anne ~

ps: Heaven got a road hero, today!

Jopa must have been off TT when I started because he sounds like the type of driver I would have enjoyed and remembered. Sad news. I read his profile and know he had children and grandchildren. My condolences to his family. RIP.
