Rhea Jarvis, our colleague in football, was a loyal servant of the game for two decades.
Over the years, Rhea served as the manager of the boys’ and girls’ national teams. She was the local course organizer for the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association (ABFA), Concacaf and FIFA, and a Caribbean Football Union (CFU) and ABFA match coordinator. She was appointed to the Concacaf 2020 list of coordinators.
Rhea also dedicated time as a manager of the Piggott’s Football Club and an organizer of the North Coast Nation Cup Tournament and the Villa Lions Premier Youth League.
Rhea was dedicated, kind, knowledgeable, and patient. She was motivated and motivating—a self-starter who was always ready to spring into action regardless of what was there to be done. Rhea was a consummate team player who was willing and extremely capable.
We have lost a treasured member of our team, and her passing leaves a void.
The ABFA Executive Committee on behalf of all our Member Clubs and the wider Football Fraternity extends sincere condolences to the family. We will continue to hold you in our thoughts and prayers and will forever cherish Rhea’s memory and honor her contribution.
