Jodi Huisentruit’s sister JoAnn Nathe and her daughter Kristen made a visit to Mason City tonight to see the billboards we dedicated on Jodi’s 50th birthday on June 5th.
They were pleased to see the billboards in person.
Our team is thankful that the billboards are still up past the deadline – and that’s all thanks Fairway Outdoor for donating the additional time before a new clients purchases the board. We are grateful for your generosity.
The following is a statement from Jodi’s family and was read during our event in Mason City on June 5th, 2018 near one of the billboards calling attention to her case.
It was read by former KIMT-TV General Manager John Shine.
The statement reads:
We would like to send out a big thank you to the members of the Find Jodi team for all of the work they have done and continue to do in trying to find answers and keeping Jodi’s case alive, including these beautiful billboards. It is amazing to us that many of the members never met or knew Jodi personally, yet they are so willing to give of their own time and resources to help solve the case and bring Jodi the justice she deserves. We would especially like to thank Josh Benson, his wife Tara Manis Benson, and Caroline Lowe for all of the time and effort they put in to making these billboards a reality. We are so grateful, and we know Jodi would be as well.
We would also like to say thank you to the members of Jodi’s Network of Hope for all of the work they do in making something good out of something so tragic. From scholarships and safety training to the annual golf tournament, you help keep Jodi’s spirit alive, and we are grateful to you.
Thank you for your continued support in our mission to bring Jodi home.
