Benefit fund established at Islanders Bank for Grone Family

Some of you may know Jacque Grone as the reassuring voice on the receiving end of calling 911 Emergency Dispatch.

Some know her as the helpful person on the other side of the desk at San Juan Healthcare.

Others will recall her enormous effort with the local Relay For Life.

She is also wife to David and mother to Ashley and Jason.

In many roles and for many years, Jacque has been an integral part of the San Juan Island community and now her family could benefit from support in return.

On March 19, Jacque suffered a brain aneurysm and was flown off-island to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. After extensive surgery, she remains in intensive care. The recovery and rehabilitation will be extensive but her doctors say her prognosis is very good.

Friends of the Grone family have established a fund at Islanders Bank to help the family offset their living expenses during Jacque’s recovery.
