Join us in celebrating the life of the tireless campaign volunteer Jan Terry, who passed away over the weekend. Jan was also known as Lee Terry’s wife, and Lee Terry’s mom (depending if you were talking about the Sr. or the Jr.).
Jan was involved in most every major Republican campaign in the past decades — and hardly just those of her husband or son. She knew everyone and everyone knew her.She gave advice, got volunteers organized, set up events, stuffed envelopes, and did all the other things that keep campaigns and party organizations running. She always had her giant rolodexes at the ready and could flip out a campaign op’s phone number at the drop of a hat.
If you wanted to get the sense of the party, you could ask Jan. And oh by the way, it was almost always with a smile and a laugh and a joke as well. She was the kind of person who made politics fun.
Rest in Peace Jan.
