It is with a heavy heart that I share this news of the passing of our former IAWP State Chapter President, colleague and friend Jaide Ni Dufaigh, she passed away on Saturday 10/21/23, surrounded by her family and friends.
For those of you who were fortunate enough to have her as a colleague and friend, you know that Jaide was truly an extraordinary person and an invaluable leader within the IAWP Washington chapter. Jaide's leadership was nothing short of inspiring. She had a unique ability to bring people together, fostering a sense of unity and purpose. Jaide was a warrior not just with her personal battle, she also fought for her friends, colleagues and for the IAWP Association.
She held up the State Chapter during COVID, despite her on-going battle. Her efforts in organizing events, and ensuring that our members had access to valuable resources will be remembered and appreciated for years to come. Jaide began her career at the Spokane Claims Center and then relocated to the West side and began working at WorkSource, she had a deep passion for helping the citizens of Washing State. Jaide's absence leaves a void that will be difficult to fill, but her legacy lives on in the hearts and minds of everyone she touched. Her kindness, leadership, and unwavering dedication will continue to inspire us to strive for excellence in all that we do.
In the memory of Jaide and her valent battle IAWP is asking you to wear Pink and take a selfie in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, then send it to IAWP @ email@example.com we will put your name into a gift card drawing.
