Louis C. Jumper Jr. passed away at home early on Thursday, December 31, 2020. He was born on January 18, 1933 in Marble City, Oklahoma to Louis and Mallie Jumper. He attended school in Oklahoma, and started teaching high school in 1959 in Tuba City, Arizona. He spent his career as a teacher, coach and administrator serving several schools on the Navajo Reservation, including Tuba City, Ganado, Kayenta, Pinon, and lastly as Planning Principal for the building of a new high school in White Cone. His greatest pleasure was working with kids. Toward the end of his career, he had his students come to him and tell him that their grandma remembered him as their favorite coach or teacher.
