Jhill112 Patches - To remember Randell Lee Hill

***Just wanted to let everyone know that I spoke to Jhill's wife today and she cannot believe the support the online community is showing and is very appreciative of everything we are doing to remember her husband and a fellow paintballer. She cannot thank everyone enough for the support. She is in awe realizing how spread out we are and how close we are at the same time. People helping out someone who they have never met. I believe what we are doing is helping and it makes me proud to be a member of this forum. Thanks again fellas. On a side note, if anyone wants to send direct stuff to Jhill's family (I know a few have asked), please PM me for it as I will not be posting it publicly but have permission to send it to individuals.***


These patches were ordered by Critical and all proceeds from the patches are going to Jhill's wife to help in time of need. I spoke to Jhill's wife and she told me that he was looking forward to the upcoming Texas MCB meet up that Clearush was putting together with a few other members here. Jhill passed away on March 19th, 2009 from pneumonia. At 26 years old, this seems absurd, but that was the diagnosis he was given. He passed in the car next to his wife in front of the emergency room. Between him and his wife, they have six kids. This gets to me a little more personally I think due to the fact that I am turning 26 shortly and have a family that could not do without my presence (at least it seems that way). I am trying to help in any way I can and I believe this patch helps on 2 different levels. Remembering Jhill as a person and not just a screen name and a financial help for his family.

Patches are $5.50 shipped and if you would like to donate anything beyond that, please put it in the notes with your payment. I will be listing these on my site as well. Thanks to everyone in advance.

Paypal is noxx55@yahoo.com

Here is a picture of the patch that is being done (designed by Critical)

If they are at Castle I'll likely grad another one.

Are we keeping this "in house" or are we just trying to sell as many as possible?

I know Jhill was on AOG as well and he was really into Automags. I actually anodized his Emag black and green marble. Critical has not gotten back to me whether these will be ready in time or not, but I believe that is what he was shooting for. I will have more info when he logs on today.

Not to knock your thread or anything but just to make this more visible any chance we can talk to the mods about getting it linked to the main MCB page were the news links go?

If you have them at castle, I'll snag a bunch too. Otherwise I'll just place my order after castle if they're not there.

Thanks Noxx!

Good to see this get up and running Noxx, I hope we can do some good and maybe help out his wife too. I ordered 100 of these patches, if they all get sold, I have no problem ordering more.

The company says that their process takes 3 weeks, start to finish. I'm hoping that I can appeal to their humanity and get that sped up a little. Otherwise, 3 weeks puts it just after Castle.

This is fantastic. Critical, Noxx, way to go.

I will take at least 3.

If there is anything I can do to help as well, let me know.

I would offer shirts, but you may as well do them locally to the event to save money.

LEt's crank this up and show this family what MCB can do when we put our minds to it.
