Tribute to jasper pettingill 2010-2021

On April 14, 2021 KCSM lost one of our own ... Jasper, beloved companion and co-host of Jayn Pettingill. In 2010 Jayn rescued a young 4-month-old pup from Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue, she named him Jasper and they were a team ever since. Jasper accompanie Jayn almost everywhere, and his friendly nature won the hearts of the staff and volunteers at KCSM.

When Jayn and Jasper would arrive at the KCSM studios, Jasper would gallop from office to office in search of an always-present treat. He would howl loudly if you took too long to feed him, and then happily roam from office to office looking for his next goodie and scratches until it was finally time to return for a nap at Jayn's feet while she hosted her show.

It's never easy to say goodbye to the ones we love, and to Jayn and everyone who loved Jasper, his loss is going to hurt like heck, but that's Jasper trying to find a comfortable spot to lay in our hearts. Once he settles in all comfy, the ache will ease and Jasper will be with us forever in the beautiful memories we made. Run free Jasper!
