In Memory of our friend, Jason Vincent (1974-2020)
The Norwich Historical Society was shocked and devastated to hear of the passing of Jason Vincent. Jason served on our board for many years and he had such a passion for telling the City of Norwich’s stories. He was instrumental in building a robust Walktober program in Norwich and laid the groundwork for many projects, such as the Norwich Heritage and Regional Visitors Center and the Walk Norwich Trail system.
Jason was an integral member of the Uncas Leap Steering Committee and he was passionate about turning the site into a heritage park for residents and visitors to enjoy. Jason was a firm believer in partnerships and played a key role in getting all of the Norwich Heritage Groups to collaborate with each other. Jason was a problem solver, a big thinker, and had a can-do attitude that inspired everyone.
His profound loss will be felt for years to come; he was truly a champion for Norwich. Jason was a colleague, mentor, and friend to everyone at NHS. We extend our deepest and heartfelt sympathies to Jason’s family and friends. NHS is honored by the family’s decision to direct donations to the organization in his memory. The Norwich Historical Society will do our best to honor his legacy and move the projects that he cared about forward.
