Jan was one of my favorites.  She and I have a love hate relationship.  I loved her and she hated when I opened my mouth.  Still, we were always cordial and the day I knew she liked me was when we were in Huntsville, there was movie at the Space Center.  I went down front for the best effects.  Suddenly someone tapped me on the should and said, "Would you mind if I sat beside you."  It was Jan and we both laughed about being out in public together like that.  She once approached me and said she wanted an honest answer.  She was protective (as she should have been) about her manikins.  She said that one supplier wanted her to cut the toes off her bobcats and lynx forms. She wasn't happy about it and asked me for an honest opinion.  I told her though I lived her manikins and used them, I always cut the toes off and clayed them so I could adjust them to the diorama I was using.  She confided that she'd never thought of that.  I like Jan.  I liked her a lot and will sure miss her.  The industry with miss her much more.  God Speed, Lady.

One of the sad things about aging is we go to more funerals than weddings.

It is always so sad when those we care about pass.  Jan was a special person with a special gift she gave freely to everyone.  My condolences to her family.  She leaves a wonderful    legacy of innovation and advocacy to the taxidermy world.  Gone but never forgotten

I'm sorry to hear this.  Jan was such a lovely lady and a pioneer to women in the taxidermy industry.  Danny judged with her many times and always appreciated her great knowledge of all things natural history and taxidermy.  At one UTA show the judges drew pictures of their area of specialization on the clipboards they were using for judging.  The artwork was then auctioned off to help raise money for the UTA.  Danny and I are the proud owners of Jan's picture- a bobcat head.  We will treasure it always. Rest in peace, my friend.

I just learned of her passing.  Rest in Peace, dear Lady.  You will be missed by many.  She always had a smile, and always made it a point to come over and talk to my wife and me.  My sincerest condolences to her family and friends ...

I met Jan in 1992 in Gainsville Ga. at the world show where she had her magnificent bobcat laying on it's back in a bed of moss. Then I saw her again at the Conn. show and we discussed my Taxidermy Today article on making animal ear liners out of felt and Bondo. A great lady and admired by many including myself. Keep the gates open for me Jan.

She deserves to have a special award named for her , like the Inchumick award ....... most innovative, expressionism etc.   somebody can work out details but Van Housen is a name that should be remembered at all NTA competitions.
