June 12, 2020 - USA Swimming Announces the Passing of Gina Mensay

It is with deep sadness that USA Swimming announces the passing of Gina Mensay, long-time official and employee of USA Swimming. Gina was the epitome of a great employee and co-worker, and she was a friend to us all. Mike Davis, Pacific Swimming Officials' Chair says, "Gina Mensay was a Titan, Wonder Woman and a Friend to all for USA Swimming."

Gina started working at USA Swimming seven years ago and in that time made such an impact on countless volunteers and staff within the sport.  A few years ago, when her work had her immersed in the Officials’ world, Gina realized that it would be helpful to her job if she herself learned to become a deck official. That was her commitment level, and this attitude shone through time and time again.

Our hearts go out to her husband, Chris, and their three children, Erin, Gracie and Daniel.

Here is the link to her obituary:
