JRA Mourns Passing of Former Owner Amy Merrell

Cincinnati, OH, USA — It is with deep sadness that JRA (Jack Rouse Associates) announces the passing of Amy Merrell on February 16, 2015 after a prolonged illness.

Amy was one of the original founders and owners of JRA and considered to be one the cornerstones of the company.  Her passion, hard work and pursuit of excellence in everything she did were major contributors to the success that JRA has enjoyed for over 25 years.

“We have lost a core member of the JRA family,” said Keith James, Chief Executive Officer/Owner.  “More importantly, we have lost a very close friend.”

Amy is survived by her husband Yousef Aouad, and their sons, Gus and Quinn.

Donations in honor of Amy can be made to the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, Our Daily Bread Cincinnati, or the American Cancer Society.
