USA Judo

 

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the loss of USA Judo National Team member and Olympic hopeful, Jack Hatton.

Jack won multiple medals on the International Judo Federation's World Tour and represented his country as part of Team USA at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru. While he was an accomplished and aspiring athlete on the world’s stage, Jack was so much more than that to all who knew and loved him. Jack's untimely passing deeply impacted everyone in the USA Judo family, the extended worldwide judo family and the global sporting community. We, along with Jack's family and friends "hope that the legacy of Jack's loss will inform the future." You are not alone; we are all stronger together.
