Tribute to Jan Rossouw

The Qhubeka team is devastated at the loss of Jan Rossouw, who passed away suddenly on 9 October. Jan was a long-time Qhubeka supporter who became part of our team, bringing a wealth of business experience and a passion for cycling with him. His enthusiasm and ability to get things done were incredible assets to us, and he has been the driving force behind many of our initiatives, including our first distribution of bicycles to first responders, which he oversaw in the wake of the Knysna fires in 2017. Jan loved being at bicycle distributions and seeing Qhubeka bicycle recipients taking ownership of their bicycles.

He leaves a hole in our team and will be sorely missed. We extend our condolences to his family and loved ones and remain grateful for all he contributed to our work and our Qhubeka team.
