It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Jill Swain, Executive Director of the Huntersville Regional Chamber. Jill was a leader, visionary and was one of the founders of the Chamber. Her passion for being a catalyst for business growth, a convenor of leaders and a ‘champion for a stronger community has enriched us all. Most if not all chamber members can attest to Jill’s ability to connect the right people at the right time creating partnerships that have had a positive economic impact to the community. She was tenacious when it came to promoting the town and its businesses. That personal objective was illustrated in a passage from a recent column she wrote about the organization for the Lake Norman Citizen.


“We know each other, not only as businesspeople, but as neighbors and friends,” she wrote. “As such, we understand our customers live among us and not only should we promote the business community but support the community as a whole.”


Our deepest sympathies are with her family and all those who loved her.
