Shumla Celebrates the

Life of Jo Ann Harris



It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jo Ann Harris, our Board Vice President and dear friend. She was a truly remarkable woman and a daily reminder of what one person can accomplish, against all odds, with clarity of purpose, hard work and a passion for doing what's right.


She was a role model for all of us, guiding with integrity and a fearless spirit, tempered by a warm smile and compassion. Her leadership in the office and as a Board member was one of fierce dedication, softened by her thoughtful presence, steady hand, and clear insight.


Jo Ann embodied Shumla's vision of connecting with our environment and cultivating future growth through research and education. She passionately supported our efforts to foster stewardship of the past and participation in shaping our legacies for future generations. 


We are grateful for Jo Ann's countless contributions and service on our board for over a decade. Thank you, Jo Ann, for making a lasting, positive difference in our lives. You will be deeply missed.


The Shumla Board of Directors has established a Jo Ann Harris Commemorative Fund to honor our dear friend and one of our greatest supporters. 


If you would like to share a memory or story about Jo Ann, please email us at  These thoughts will be collected and shared with her family, as well as in a future issue of Shumla's eNews.
