The world lost an amazing guy last week and the Island Pub lost a great friend.
Dean Van Dusseldorp may have left Juneau a while ago, but he continued to meet his team in Utah for the Huntsman's Games and in Nevada for motorcycle rides with Dennis Powers. Dean (Deano) was a sweet, sweet man with the best smile and a RockStar Shortstop. He is missed.

This is from his daughter Faye who followed him everywhere. She was always by his side and in the dugout when Island Pub played.

Dean VanDusseldorp, 67, passed away February 12, 2022 in North Las Vegas, Nevada, surrounded by his family. He had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He was born September 28, 1954 in Fort Hood, Texas to Ralph Van Dusseldorp and Sharon (Heggen) Van Dusseldorp.
He grew up in Iowa City, Iowa, graduating from Iowa City High School in 1972. He attended the University of Iowa where he met his wife, Karen Evans. They married and moved to Juneau, Alaska in 1977. In 1989, Dean and Karen welcomed a daughter, Faye. Dean built a career in computer programming for the State of Alaska, holding many positions, culminating with his work for the Alaska Marine Highway System. He retired in 2009 and relocated to North Las Vegas. Dean was a talented athlete and an avid sports fan. He loved playing softball and was a lifelong Iowa Hawkeye fan. Since the day he received his drivers license, Dean loved to be behind the wheel of a fast car and on the open road, resulting in frequent travel.
Dean is survived by his beloved daughter, Faye Patterson (Jim), granddaughters, Eleanor VanDusseldorp and Matilda Schumm, North Las Vegas, Nevada, mother, Sharon Van Dusseldorp (William Peak), Iowa City, Iowa, brother, David Van Dusseldorp (Debbie Beermann) Iowa City, Iowa, sister, Susan Hamada (Craig), Draper, Utah, step-mother, Marilyn Johnson, Tucson, Arizona, and a large, loving extended family and many friends. He is preceded in death by his father, Ralph Van Dussseldorp, and his wife, Karen VanDusseldorp.
Dean will be remembered for his quick wit, sharp intellect, easy laugh, and the twinkle in his eye.

Umpires are needed 2-3 games per night, 1-5 nights a week Monday through Friday, with two weekend tournaments during the season. Experience is desired, but training is available. This is a great opportunity to earn some extra money over the summer – plus, JSA players who decide to be Umpires have their player fees waived!

Training sessions will begin on Tuesday, March 8, and run for eight weeks. More information about the training to follow. If you’re interested in becoming an Umpire or know someone who is, please let us know!

JSA members,

I was asked to do a write up for Kyle Scholl to let everyone know that he has submitted his resignation as our JSA Executive Director (ED). I had the privilege of working with Kyle as the former JSA President. Kyle has been a very valuable member of JSA for many many years! He has participated in many leagues in JSA for Men's as well as Coed. Kyle joined the JSA Board a while back and had a stint as the Vice President. Kyle decided to give up that glorious seat to become the Executive Director. In his term as ED, Kyle has brought many sponsorships to the tournaments and helped out in EVERY aspect of JSA. From making sure to get everyone signed up, to taking money at the ballfield, to tournament directing, to building dugouts, and so much more. Kyle participated in many JSA Committees as a JSA Member and ED to assist with them as needed. To help JSA with scheduling, Kyle even did another stint as an umpire. Kyle had a unique way of communicating with everyone and making sure people were notified. He answered many texts, calls, emails, Facebook messages, shouts from the field, being stopped in the grocery store, even people reaching out to his personal phone, email and texts. If any issues were brought to Kyle from any JSA Member, Kyle made sure it was brought to the board for review. Kyle's love of the game and this community showed in his commitment to JSA.

Kyle, thank you so much for your service and assistance with everything. You will be missed at JSA and even all the crap talking on the field! Good luck in your next adventure somewhere warmer!
