Yesterday afternoon around six pm our foreman and good friend and brother J J Hill past away by drowning at a river near the Ohio state fair grounds. He was the foreman of the tilt a whirl of big show unit. tonight we mourned on his behalf to remember him in all ways possible. and we know that he wants us to celebrate his new life, cause living in the carnival is a hard life to live. he was always good when you needed help or a good advice plus he never felt any pain, he limped around everywhere and always made opening. We all the employees of Amusement of America will remember you!!!

It's sad to hear about a loss of a friend, family & co-worker.
What a "show" when we all get there..

I got several calls last night when it had happened I'm so sorry about the loss. JJ was definately a great person as well as a foreman. I never had to go to him about anything he did his job and did it well. He is definately in a better place. I'm also glad to see someone from Big A put this nice artical about JJ here cause I was just going to do it.
