A Tribute to Our Friend, Charlie Olson

Charles W. (“Charlie”) Olson passed away on July 18, shortly after suffering a stroke.  He had a zest for life that was readily apparent in the twinkle in his eye and quick smile.  Charlie lived a full life right up until its end.  In addition to being an active, involved parent and grandparent, he was a life-long “car guy” through and through, owning, restoring and showing numerous American and British automobiles.

Charlie was a member of the Delaware Valley Jaguar Club and JCNA since March of 1998.  During those twenty-one years, he served as a Concours judge (including judging for other JCNA clubs), chief judge, assistant chief judge, Concours chairman for over ten years and president for eight years (2007-2014).  Additionally, he readily volunteered to take on many other tasks to support our club and was a valuable member of the executive committee of DVJC.  In fact, Charlie never stopped volunteering right up to the time he suffered his stroke. 

All of us who had the good fortune to know Charlie, will miss him and are better for having known him and sharing time with him.

God Bless our Friend, Charlie Olson.
