In Memoriam – Joselin Matkins

March 16, 1978 to January 8, 2021

It is with the heaviest of hearts that the Teton Regional Land Trust staff and board of directors share the news of the sudden passing of our beloved Joselin Matkins, our Executive Director. Joselin will be remembered for her dedication, passion, and exceptional work in conservation, primarily in the Upper Snake River region in eastern Idaho. She was a loving daughter, partner, mentor, and friend to many. The legacy she leaves behind is a lifetime accomplishment and an amazing gift that all of us and future generations will benefit from.

Our hearts go out to her family, friends, and colleagues as we all try to make sense of this unimaginable loss. The Land Trust is committed to continuing to advance the work Joselin was so passionate about and to honor her memory.

Cards and condolences can be sent to Joselin’s partner: Jeremiah Keavney, PO Box 953, Driggs, ID  83422, and to her parents John and Carol Matkins c/o Jeremiah Keavney
