Jachym Impacted Countless Lives

CSHOF Inductee’s Generosity, Character Remembered

April 7, 2013
The Post-Journal

EDITOR'S NOTE: "42," a biographical film about the life of Jackie Robinson, opens in movie theaters across the country on Friday. The late John Jachym, a Chautauqua County Sports Hall of Fame inductee, was a personal friend of Robinson and Branch Rickey, the Brooklyn Dodgers' president and general manager at the time. But Robinson and Rickey, both members of the Baseball Hall of Fame who broke the racial barrier in America's pastime in the 1940s, weren't the only influential people whom Jachym knew. Following is a story that appeared in The Post-Journal on May 11, 2005, the day after his passing at age 87.
