Remembering Jock Whitworth
With the recent passing of former Zion Superintendent Jock Whitworth, we reached out to friends and colleagues to share memories of Jock as a leader and friend. Jock was Superintendent of Zion from 2003 until his retirement in 2014.
During that time, he not only led the park in its daily operations, but also championed new ideas and programs that have had lasting impacts on the park resource, the park service, and the Zion Forever Project.
