ETC Remembers J'Mel R. Davidson
June 9, 1975 - August 10, 2018

J'Mel was our dear friend, and one of ETC's founding players. Having improvised with several of us in both torrential downplay and The Feminist Debutante Guild, which he founded, J'Mel was part of our team long before ETC first hit the stage in 2008. ETC has grown on the solid foundation that J'Mel helped us to build.

The ETC family is heartbroken for our loss. However, we take comfort in the many years of laughter J'Mel shared with all of us. He will be profoundly missed.
