Three longtime Naperville Jaycees, now past the age 40-year mark and known as Jaycees Roosters, also have the distinction to be members of the J.C.I. Senate. KEVIN GENSLER, AL DEGEETER and RAY KINNEY followed the late Charles “Chuck” Bueche as recipients of the highest international honor that can be given to a Jaycee. Only one out of 1,000 Jaycees becomes a Senator. Senators are recognized for their advocacy of assisting and mentoring Jaycees, supporting the U.S. JCI Senate Foundation and promoting fellowship among members.

Members of the Jaycees and the Jaycees Gazebo along the Riverwalk were featured on the first front cover of PN in September 2001 and again in September 2011 to promote Last Fling. Only one of the four Jaycees Senators did not appear in a cover photo. Who did you think it was?
