Hi there Patches Pals! Welcome to the BRAND NEW JPPatches.com! First of all, I want to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone one who contributed to the Save the J.P. Patches Website GoFundMe campaign! Thanks to your contributions we can continue to have this space to remember Seattle’s favorite clown!

And thanks for you patience while I’ve been giving the website a little makeover. It’s still a work in progress, as there is a lot of information to reorganize, but I wanted to be able to get this up and running before the holidays.

I’ve been going through all of the content that was on the previous website and even more images and video that I’ve managed to track down and am trying to present it in a fun, but useful way. As I find it, I’ll be upgrading some of the older, lower resolution images and video with better quality versions, if they exist.

Some pages are still under construction and will be finished as I find the time. Stay tuned, folks! There’s more to come!

And lastly, I want to thank the previous webmeister, Bob Alexander, who has done a bang-up job designing and maintaining the previous version of JPPatches.com for the past 10 years! Kudos to you, sir! Pat on the back and all that jazz!

Your Webmeister,
Curt Hanks

    Nice work on the site, Curt! And as always, thank you to the amazing Mrs. Wedes for letting you keep Chris’s legacy alive! I met her at Costco once (I live only a mile away from her) and we stood in the parking lot for a few minutes and talked. I kept wanting to grab passers-by and yell “Do you know who this is?” 🙂
