On April 2, 2020, our friend, colleague, teacher, mentor, and inspiration John J Todd succumbed to his short and intense battle with Cancer. His passing was an incredible shock to all whose lives he touched and forever changed for the better. To simply say that he will be missed, doesn't seem to fully appreciate his impact in our lives. He will continue to teach and instruct us in his powerful ways - always helping us find the truth, joy and humanity in all we endeavor.
As the world is dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and all our lives are on hold, so are plans to celebrate and remember his life. Hopefully we will be able to gather soon and share stories about his wonderful life and all that he meant to us! Details will be forthcoming on this web page as well as from an email account established to collect photos, videos and other remembrances of this incredible individual. Please email email@example.com to register your email for forthcoming information.
In honor of John (JJ), a memorial scholarship is in the planning stages, with hopes of helping future generations of dancers, directors, choreographers, problem solvers, and honest, truthful TALENTS!! Again, email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or contributions for the fund.
His final expenses and assistance to his Husband of 23 years, Seth Belliston-Todd, is being crowdfunded through GoFundMe.
Until we can be together, there is not thanks enough for the flood of love and generosity that has poured out since his passing.
Be Well. Stay Healthy.
