Fight Like a Mother

While a lot of tough battles take place on the field, some take place quietly in our communities. Tualatin Lacrosse mother and community member Jo Bitz fought a valiant battle against lung cancer and in her remarkable spirit a scholarship has been created in her name. Together with the Bitz Family we have committed to raising funds to support one high school student per year for 10 years in honor of Jo.

A devoted mother and fan of Tualatin Lacrosse, Jo raised 4 boys and was known for her loving spirit towards all team members and their families. Jo lived life to the fullest alongside her husband Craig. Jo's diverse talents included careers in both the modeling world and as a longshoreman. In her free time enjoyed boating, camping, four wheeling, off roading and decorating for events and parties in true Hollywood style. Most of all, she loved cheering on the sidelines for her boys who both play and coached lacrosse.
