The Chilliwack Sports Hall of Fame lost a friend and a valuable contributor in September, 2019.
Jacob Bestebroer passed away after a long battle with cancer.
Bestebroer was a member of the CSHOF board for many years. With an encyclopedic knowledge of Chilliwack sports, he chaired the selection committee that helped nominate potential hall of famers and select inductees.
Respected for his hard work and attention to detail, Bestebroer was known to spend hours combing through old newspaper clippings in the Chilliwack Archives. His role will not easily be filled and he is dearly missed by his fellow CSHOF board members.
Rest in peace JB.
