Jan Oliver Alms Death – Obituary, Funeral, Cause Of Death
It is with great sadness that I write this. Jan Oliver Alms passed away on Friday, September 17, 2021. He was 71. Jan was a veteran of the United States Air Force, an artist and a graphic designer. He taught in the Advertising and Graphic Design program at McDowell Technical Community College for many years. In fact, he helped start the program at the school.
Anyone who knew Jan never forgot him. He was a character. He was very passionate about everything he did. He had a quick wit and was always ready with a joke.
He was an extraordinary artist and designer. His paintings grace the walls of many businesses and homes throughout Western North Carolina. He was an amazing designer, both teaching and running design businesses throughout his career.
Jan was a great mentor. When I began working at McDowell Tech in 2010, Jan helped me find my way. As a new teacher, I understood that I didn’t know a lot. Then I met Jan and realized I knew even less. He was a fountain of knowledge. I could always go to him for guidance, whether about content or about instruction.
Most importantly, Jan was a great friend. I will miss him.
The family will schedule a memorial service for Jan at a later date. His obituary is available at https://beamfuneralservice.com/obituaries/jan-alms-1.
Please feel free to post any memories you have of Jan in the comments below. I know that he touched many lives before I even began working at McDowell Tech. I know we would all love to read any stories or anecdotes you might have. Though Jan may no longer be with us, his legacy at McDowell Tech and in the community will live on through his work.
