Joe Offer Obit: Amos Jessup - 14 March 2019 (74* d) RE: Obit: Amos died today - 14 March 2019 14 Mar 19


Amos and LEJ and I made an annual trip to Hillsborough, North Carolina, for many years. I won't lie - it was because of the wonderful women who lived there. And I suppose we all watched over each other to make sure we didn't behave inappropriately.

And then Amos upset the balance and moved to Hillsborough with his wife Daly, and we grew to love her, too.

I started spending significant time with Amos back in about 2005, when Kendall came here to Northern California to do a concert with Utah Phillips - and Amos drove all the way up here from San Diego for the concert. I've seen him every years at the Getaway in DC since Lord knows when, and then I had more time with him when we started making our annual pilgrimage to Hillsborough - so we'd spend a week or more together making music and conversation, and not just the 3-day Getaway.

Along the way, Amos became a significant and beloved person in my life. I'll miss him.
