In Memory of John Trageser

John Trageser was truly an inspiration to us all. Over 35 years ago, he and his wife Novella, who is affected with retinitis pigmentosa (RP), joined the Foundation Fighting Blindness. For 31 years he served as Chapter President of the Central Virginia Chapter--the longest serving President of all 50 chapters. Sadly, John passed away on December 13, 2010 but his legacy will live on forever.

John and Novella first heard of the Foundation Fighting Blindness in a newspaper article about two students, Brian Hubbard and Ann Scott, at a nearby university trying to start a local chapter. They called and, shortly after, went to their first official chapter meeting in March 1975. They became very close friends with the chapter members including George & Irene Dolan, Carroll Hudson, Carolyn Matthews, Linwood & Ellen Fleming and others. Their tight-knit group of friends has remained at the core of the chapter since it began, and for over 30 years, the Tragesers have welcomed chapter members to their home for an annual picnic supporting the Foundation.

In the past few years, the Tragesers became involved in the Richmond VisionWalk and inspired their family, friends and neighbors to support the Foundation and its efforts through the walk. In fact, John and Novella inspired the creation of seven teams that participated in the inaugural Richmond VisionWalk. They were always happy to raise money for research that's so important to their family. "It's always been about the next generation," John once said. "It's never been about us."

John was thrilled with the great strides the Chapter and the Foundation have made since that first meeting almost four decades ago and through his work, we will continue in his footsteps.
