IFCA was very saddened to learn this morning that Jack Eberspacher, President and CEO of the Ag Retailers Association in Washington, D.C. died on Sunday July 5. Jack had been ill for the past few months. Jack was very involved in the ag industry his entire career, having also worked for the National Grain Sorghum Association and the National Association of Wheat Growers before joining ARA in 2001. Jack did a great job revitalizing and growing the membership of the ARA. His passing is a great loss to the ag retail industry that he stridently supported and effectively represented. Expressions of sympathy can be sent to the Eberspacher family at 1419 Richview Court, Vienna VA 22182-1527.
