The USA Jump Rope community and sport of jump rope lost a wonderful friend January 23, 2015 from Pancreatic cancer. Kathy Moe served on the USA Jump Rope Board of Directors from 2005-2010 including offices as Vice President and Treasurer. She brought a positive energy and her knowledge of marketing, fund raising, camp management and so much more to our board of directors, organization and the office staff. 

Kathy made so many contributions to USA Jump Rope and the Summerwind Skippers.  She was brilliant and able to lend her expertise in so many areas.  But first and foremost, she was a true parent volunteer.  She volunteered with her home team, USA Jump Rope, her church and many other events, always willing to give her time unselfishly.  USA Jump Rope and her daughter, Kelsy Porter agreed that we would present an award in her name to honor an outstanding volunteer.

She was always the number one fan of her daughter, Kelsy Moe Porter and she also loved her team, the Summerwind Skippers. She was also a "jump rope mom" to so many jumpers across the USA and many jumpers have a Kathy Moe story or a memory of how she helped them or encouraged them along the way. She loved to talk about "the boss" - her granddaughter, Lottie Scout Porter. We will miss you Kathy and you will live on in our hearts and memories for all the days of our lives.
