This meet is being held in honor of Jill Griesse and her many contributions to swimming and the lives she touched through her coaching career and other activities.
One of the happiest times of Jill’s life was in 1968 when she founded and coached the Pau Hana Swim Club in Newark following her own swim career during which she won both senior and Junior National Synchronized Swimming Championships. Jill served on the U.S. Olympic Swimming Committee for 18 years and travelled internationally with the Committee.
Jill was the recipient of countless awards, including her 1994 election to the Ohio Women’s Hall of Fame, the 2007 Licking County Foundation Everett D. Reese Award, the 2011 Granville Good Scout Award, the 2013 Robbins Hunter Women’s Board Victoria Woodhull Woman of Distinction and the 2013 Central Ohio Technical College Legends of Loyalty Award.
Jill enriched the lives of everyone she encountered, inspiring each to try a little harder to fulfill their purpose. Considered by many a force of nature, she dreamed up innovative ways to entertain, often fund raising for her favorite causes while sharing pure fun with her friends and family. She left the world a better and more beautiful place, and she was afforded the tremendous opportunity to live her goodbyes with everyone she loved.
We are pleased to host this meet in Jill’s honor and the legacy she left behind. In addition to Jill’s memory, the meet will benefit Pelotonia.
