Breaking News: JT Memorial Ski Race - This Weekend

On February 27th, 2012 we lost a son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, fellow student, friend and teammate as JT Hilligoss died unexpectedly of a cardiac abnormality in his sleep.

JT Hilligoss touched many lives in his 17 short years. He was a little brother to some and like an older brother to others, who he took time to play with. He was a mischievous young man who liked to have fun. He enjoyed his close friends and always had many of them by him. He always had a smile on his face and had a way of making you smile. He had a way of making everyday things fun. He was the happiest when on skis. It could be practice or just goofing around with friends. When it was time to race, he took that part very serious. He loved life.

Premier Machine Tool Midwest is very proud to be able to help honor JT as a sponsor of the "JT Hilligoss Memorial Ski Race" this coming weekend! JT has a special place in our hearts as he was nephew of one of the owners of PMT- A.J. Schweda and worked for the other owner- Josh Witt- As evident by the picture below of JT in his uniform (or should we say Kevin's uniform as he didn’t have one yet)

We miss you tremendously JT but are so happy so many of you have signed up for your ski race to help honor you and give out college scholarships to those who most resemble your high school achievements!

This year’s event is again being held locally at the Little Switzerland Ski Resort in Slinger Wi this Saturday starting at 8:30am.
