March 23, 1931 – March 19, 2015
2013 – 2015
In honor of former regional coordinator, Dr. William G. Lesso, we dedicate this page to his memory and his dedication to JASNA. He carried the torch of enthusiasm for Jane Austen’s works after the loss of his predecessor, Lynda Chiu, in January 2013.
He was the epitome of “Love and Freindship.” Through his leadership, members enjoyed various programs, book exchanges, quizzes, gifts, and most of all, engaging discussions about our favorite and least favorite works. We miss his liveliness, intellect, generosity, and “gentleman-like manner,” and we are grateful for everything he did for us.
