Our First Tee Family is shocked and deeply saddened by the sudden news of the loss of our Chairman Emeritus, mentor and friend, Jack Vardaman. We loved him as the wise, steady hand that guided us. Jack epitomized the values–especially perseverance which was his favorite core value–of which he would tell you were instilled in him through his own personal journey with the game of golf, that First Tee programming seeks to impart upon all of our participants.
Jack will be sorely missed, but his legacy lives on in the thousands of young people who have benefitted as a result of his tireless devotion and immeasurable contributions to the First Tee of Greater Washington DC.
Our prayers and love are with his family.
