From the site of the Dutch Basenji Club:
_Demise of our Chairwoman Jennifer Gielisse:
With great sadness the news arrived today that our chairwoman and co-founder of
?The Basenji Club Netherlands, Jennifer Gielisse passed away in hospital.
She died at the age of 57 years.
Jennifer was someone who did not walk away from any confrontation.
Because of her commitment to the breed, she was one of the main forces in getting
the Brindle color to be recognized within FCI.
The Basenji Club Netherlands shall miss her knowledge within the Breed,
particularly in her breeding program.
We will also miss the passion she has for the Basenji and the Club.
We wish her family lots of courage with
their loss, and in the upcoming grieving process.
Board of The Dutch Basenji Club_
Rest in peace, Jennifer
