A message from SPAAR President Brianne Lawrence

SPAAR - 01/08/2024

It is with deep sadness I’m sharing the passing of our esteemed CEO, John Fridlington. John's leadership and dedication to our organization have left an indelible mark on all of us, and his presence will be sorely missed.

John had been undergoing treatment for cancer in recent months while continuing to lead SPAAR. During this difficult time, and as we move forward, I want to assure you that SPAAR is equipped to handle this transition smoothly. Support systems are in place to assist all staff and members as we navigate through this loss.

As we mourn John's passing, let us remember the strength of our community and our ability to support one another.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to John's family. We will honor John's memory by continuing to uphold the values and standards he worked so diligently to instill within our organization and on behalf of SPAAR’s 8,000 members.

If you feel the need to talk to someone or seek support, please feel free to reach out to me during this time at (612) 203-5172.
