Judy Cox has been coming to Jackson for over 40 years with her husband Billy. She graduated from the University of Georgia with an AB Degree in Journalism, and worked for Pan American World Airlines in Association Sales, as Lead Demonstrator/Trainer for Polaroid, and as Special Events Director for Washington Home & Hospice. An active volunteer for many years, she has held numerous positions and chairmanships at the Children’s National Medical Center, the Washington National Opera Council, the Washington National Opera Women’s Committee, the Smithsonian Women’s Committee, and the Junior League of Washington.
Judy and Billy have been part-time residents of Jackson Hole for the past 13 years, spending the rest of the year in Washington, DC. They have two daughters, a son-in-law, and two wonderful grandchildren. Originally from Georgia, she spent the first 8 years of married life in ski school because it is Billy’s favorite sport, and has gone on to enjoy many other adventures such as climbing the Grand Teton and Mt. Kilimanjaro, biking around the South of Island of New Zealand, and trekking in Patagonia. She and Billy look forward to retiring in Jackson.
Judy joined the Open Space Council in 2013 and has also been actively involved in the Jackson Hole community through the City Kids Wilderness Project, the Art Association of Jackson Hole, and Addie’s Trunk Show.
Judy says, “What I like most about the Jackson Hole Land Trust is that through their diligence, we wake up to birds singing and wildlife drinking from our pond and stream. We also enjoy magnificent, unencumbered views of the valley. I joined the Land Trust’s Open Space Council because I want to help preserve this for future generations.”
