Jim Bregman informed me that George Harris was in hospice care for an aggressive form of cancer.  I am stunned as George was just here for the Winter Nationals was in good spirits. 


I have just been updated by Jim that today (January 7th) George passed away  passed away peacefully in his wife's arms at 3:50 PM EST. He will be remembered as an American judo icon and missed by all of us.


Here is the updated George Harris Annoucement I posted on the USJA website yesterday (January 14).  Today would have been his 78th birthday...FYI.
