In February we lost JMC Softub owner Michael Cooksey who has been a friend of Houseboat magazine and a regular exhibitor at our Houseboat Expo since 2006. The spa and hot tub dealer in Albany, Ky., was involved in an auto accident when his truck left the road and hit a tree. Michael was just 60 years old.

He will be missed in the houseboat industry for his years of dedication and service. Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife Janice and their four children.
