Late Jack Camp is missed

Albany Herald 20070318n3.htm: "Most everyone was jovial at Saturday’s Snickers Marathon Energy Bar Marathon Volunteers Appreciation event, but a noticeable presence was missing from the event.

Jack Camp, one the event’s most key figures, was killed this week while trying to make contact with a suspicious person near the Regency Club Apartments in East Albany.

Sara Underdown, one of the event’s organizers said that Camp’s murder cast a somber shadow over Saturday’s event.

“We had kind of planned to make this something fun and lighthearted to thank our volunteers,” Underdown said. “But you can’t help but think of Camp, who really was the definition of a volunteer.”

Underdown said that Camp was on the marathon, half-marathon, fun run and bike race’s organizer’s committee and was a key part to success of the event.

“He had helped us last year with the bike race and I saw him Tuesday was a week ago at our wrap up meeting,” Underdown said. “It’s just so sad to know that our community has lost someone like Jack Camp. It’s a real shame.”"
