Jo-Carol has been honored with sainthood by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.  

Since their founding in 1979, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc. have been a force for social activism in San Francisco and queer meccas throughout the world. Their common vows are to promulgate universal joy and expiate stigmatic guilt. Their shared ministry is one of public manifestation and habitual perpetration. They pledge support to their fellow sisters toward their personal and collective enlightenment.



From Kim Teevan:


I got a message from Wayne Sutton - the producer for the Cabaret Contest.  Wayne is going to dedicate the "Finals" Show at the Herbst Theater on Tues. 6/10/03 to Jo Carol.  He is going to re-name the Entertainer of the Year Award - "The Jo Carol" ........... He wants Tyler (Jo's husband) to present it....


The show, "Viva Variety 32" will be dedicated to Jo's memory.

From Bob Brunson:


I just got off the phone with California State Assemblyman Mark Leno and I wanted to share with all of you a very special moment.  Upon close of session today, the California State Assembly was adjourned in Honor of Jo-Carol.  Mark expressed how proud he was to know her and how thankful he was that he was able to spend time with her last Friday evening.  Mark sends his love to all of Jo's family and friends.
