JEMS Mourns the Loss of Jane Page

Jane-Jim-Page-web-1

PennWell Public Safety, publisher of JEMS, JEMS.com, FireRescue Magazine and FirefighterNation.com, is sad to report the death of Mrs. Jane Page, wife of founding publisher James O. Page, on October 1, in her Oceanside, Calif., home.
 
Jane truly was the “First Lady of EMS.” She met Jim when he was Executive Director of the Advanced Coronary Treatment (ACT) Foundation in Basking Ridge, N.J., in the mid-1970s and was by his side throughout his career in emergency services publishing and then as a leader in EMS and the fire service.
 
An understanding public safety wife, Jane supported Jim’s passion and his significant time commitment to the improvement and expansion of the services offered by EMS, fire, law enforcement and dispatch agencies. His role as a “man of the people” frequently took him away from her, his family and his home as he traveled the globe and served in many simultaneous capacities, most notably his dual positions as publisher and battalion fire chief in Carlsbad, Calif. and then as fire chief in his home town of Monterey Park, Calif.; his responsibilities as a partner in the law firm of Page, Wolfberg and Wirth, and the many pro bono cases where he represented emergency personnel and agencies; and his many projects and roles with the LA County Fire Museum.

When Jim retired and bought a large RV to tour the country and visit emergency services agencies along the way, Jane was at his side as navigator, accepting the fact that he had to stop and chat with emergency responders along the way.
 
Jane is survived by her daughters Debbie and Susan, stepsons Andy and Tom and six grandchildren.  

Information regarding sending condolences and memorial contributions is forthcoming.
