As one of the founders of the HSMO Women’s Leadership Council, our annual Purses and Pumps for Pooches and Pals event and numerous other initiatives, Jan laid the foundation for the donation of millions of dollars that helped hundreds of thousands of homeless animals rescued and cared for by the Humane Society of Missouri. Jan also was a member of the HSMO Friends Council and Board of Directors and for many years provided leadership counsel and inspiration to our organization.
Our most heartfelt sympathies are extended to Jan’s family and particularly her husband, Joe Mokwa, also a long-time friend and benefactor of HSMO. Jan truly made a difference for all of the people and animals at the Humane Society of Missouri. She will be sorely missed.
