Tragic News

On behalf of the Iowa Referee Committee, I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to the family of Jolene Nikl. Jolene passed away this past Friday from injuries sustained in a car accident in Kansas. Jolene’s husband, Larry, is still hospitalized in critical condition. Please keep the Nikl family in your thoughts and prayers.

Jolene and her three children Kristina, Douglas, and Rebecca have been active referees for many years, and Jolene was currently serving as the Secretary for the Mid-Iowa Soccer Officials Association (MISOA). Her contributions to the Iowa referee family will be greatly missed.
