Augsburg to dedicate "JC's Place"

Sept. 13, 2004

Jim CareyAugsburg College will officially dedicate the plaza outside of the Augsburg Ice Arena as "JC's Place" in a ceremony to be held on Monday, Sept. 13 at 10:35 a.m.

The event honors Jim Carey, known throughout the Augsburg community as "JC," who died suddenly of heart failure on September 13, 2003.
Carey was an Augsburg employee for 30 years, managing the college's three athletic facilities -- the two-rink Augsburg Ice Arena, Si Melby Hall and Edor Nelson Field.

Carey worked extensively with Augsburg intercollegiate and intramural sports programs, in addition to the Twin Cities sporting community through rentals of Augsburg athletic facilities. He was active in the Minnesota hockey community as a referee, coach (he served as an assistant coach of the Augsburg's men's hockey team in the late 1970s) and as one of the key people in the development of women's hockey at Augsburg in 1995.
