Alex Job Racing co-founder Holly Job passed away Saturday morning following a 19-month battle with cancer. Holly was 66.
Holly, along with husband Alex, founded AJR in 1988, building the Florida-based organization into one of the most successful sports car racing teams, with more than 70 wins and numerous championships, and was inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame in 2016.
Holly attended the University of Maryland for a degree in dance, the University of Miami with a bachelor’s degree in medical technology and later studied and received a master’s degree in hospital administration.
After marrying Alex in 1983, she left the medical industry to assist him in building and turning AJR into what it is today.
She is survived by Alex, sister Karen Dunlap and brother Eugene Hord, with details on a celebration of life being finalized.
“All of us at IMSA are heartbroken to hear of Holly Job’s passing,” IMSA President Scott Atherton said.
“Alongside Alex from the beginning, Holly was instrumental in building Alex Job Racing into one of the most successful professional sports car racing teams in the industry.
“Her warm smile and engaging personality will be missed in our paddock. Our thoughts and prayers are with Alex, Holly’s many friends and family and everybody associated with Alex Job Racing.”
Sportscar365 sends its condolences to Alex and his family at this difficult time.
