It is with sadness that we learned of the passing of JKarène Rietschin.
She was a member of the board at Studio XX for several years, contributing her media relations experience with an unfailing enthusiasm for the organization, and for all of us. She cheerfully organized adapted transportation to be able to join us at board meetings, even as it became harder and harder for her to get around.

She was a joyous woman who suffered from a rare, complicated, incurable disease which took her life in the early days of this new year. We offer our condolences to JKarène’s friends, family and especially to her children and grandchildren. She will be remembered by the XX community.
