A SAD DAY FOR THE ONLINE GAMING INDUSTRY, JULIE SIDWELL WILL BE MISSED LONDON – December 18, 2003 – Julie Sidwell, eCOGRA’s Fair Gaming Advocate, passed away last night.
This is a very sad day for eCOGRA, its staff and all those who have been fortunate to work with Julie over the years.
Despite being confined to a wheelchair, Julie was a tireless
advocate for the online gaming industry and its players. All those
fortunate to have known Julie will miss her work, and more importantly
her touching smile and warm personality. Julie’s passing is a loss not
only for eCOGRA but also for the entire online gaming industry.
Julie will be most remembered for her gracious presence and
tireless work. Julie was the Administrator of Gambling Grumbles for
Gambling.com, in charge of dispute resolution between casinos and
players. She has written many articles for Gambling OnLine Magazine,
with regard to player disputes and casino responses, and has assisted
several operators in the training of staff to prevent disputes and
increase resolution efficiency.
Julie’s work with eCOGRA was an important part of our
organization’s mission. Julie will be dearly missed by all her friends
Our thoughts and prayers go to Julie’s family during their time of
sorrow; Julie will not be forgotten and can never be replaced.
