We at Notre Dame were saddened to learn that Jeff Ames passed away on Saturday, March 13. Jeff and his wife Libby were strong supporters of Notre Dame and were recognized as Notre Dame Knights of Honor in 2012. Jeff and Libby played an important role in supporting various projects at Notre Dame, including every building campaign in the last 25 years: Share the Vision (Fritz B. Burns Center for Arts and Technology), Path to Discovery (Br. Robert Hampton Science Center), and Light the Way (Marine Corps Memorial Stadium). They were also active in their support of the Holy Cross Mothers Guild Fashion Show and the NDHS Scholarship Golf Tournament. Jeff was a long-time member of the Notre Dame Board of Directors. He will be missed.
Please keep Libby, their children, Robyn '92 and Jennifer '96, and the rest of the Ames family in your prayers.
