David Nelson

David Nelson passed away at his home in Atlanta on April 28, 2016 surrounded by family and friends.  He was 55 years old. He was born on December 23, 1961 in Knoxville, TN. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Duke University in 1984 and went on to earn an MBA in Marketing from Georgia State University in 1994. David enjoyed working in the retail industry for over 25 years but his true passion was helping others through his work for many charitable organizations.

He dedicated years to many organizations including Atlanta S/m Solidarity, SE Olympus and lastly Leather Leadership Conference. He was involved with LLC from early 2006 when he came on as Treasurer and became the friendly face you saw efficiently working tirelessly at the registration desk welcoming each presenter and attendee.

A scholarship in his memory will be awarded at LLC 2017 (scholarship application form available on the form page)

Jack McGeorge

Harvey “Jack” McGeorge passed away on August 18, 2009.  He was 59 years old.  The quote above is what he said when the Washington Post outed him in 2002 when he was a weapons inspector with U.N. Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC).  He did offer his resignation to Hans Blix, who had known of his BDSM from the beginning. Blix refused to accept his resignation.  Jack was a former Marine, a munitions expert, a sharpshooter and a chemical and biological warfare expert.  He had his own consulting company, Public Safety Group.“I am who I am. I am not ashamed of who I am — not one bit.”

Jack was a bondage enthusiast and a metal bondage collector.   He acquired his first pair of handcuffs when he was eight years old.  His first explorations with others came while he was in the Marine Corps and, then later, in Mensa.  He was a founding member and an emeritus board member of Black Rose in DC and served in several capacities including Chairman of the Board, President, Secretary and Co-chair for BR10.  Additionally he had been a member of TES, GMSMA and Delta where he had served as a chief DM.
