I received some tragic news yesterday afternoon that I wanted to share with our members.  Jeff McClaran, a long time supporter of Safeguard Iowa Partnership and last year's board chair, suffered a fatal heart attack while hunting with friends on Saturday.

I, like many of you involved in the business and emergency planning industry, have known Jeff for many years and have great respect for his programs, knowledge and professionalism.  His dedication to making Wells Fargo and the State of Iowa a better, safer place for people to work, play and live has been unsurpassed.  

In his position as the chairperson for the Safeguard Iowa board of directors, I have had the privilege of working closely with Jeff and gotten to know him a person and appreciate his great sense of humor, his love of family and friends, and his appreciation of life. He will be greatly missed.

Services for Jeff McClaran will be held at the Lutheran Church of Hope, 925 Jordan Creek Parkway, West Des Moines, on Friday December 8th.  Visitation will begin at 10:00 AM with services following at 11:00 AM. A lunch will follow in the Bridge. 

Our thoughts are with Jeff's family.
