I met Judy Markowitz in the 80’s when she worked for WJBC, long before she was Mayor Judy.
Judy was doing promotions and community outreach for the station, and I had an idea for a Downtown Bloomington IL bike race I thought she might be interested in.
Long story short, Judy and I partnered, along with Irvin Brothers, to create the WJBC Pepsi Cola Criterium. The Criterium became a nationally recognized race drawing international riders, and an estimated 10,000 people were on the streets of Bloomington watching the inaugural race.
Judy was a force, and I’ll always remember her passion and energy for her community.
Regardless of how I feel about the policies she enacted and the decisions she made, I cannot think of anyone I’ve ever met who just exploded more love for Bloomington and it’s people than Judy Markowitz.

God bless her soul. I will always be grateful for having known her. You did a wonderful job caring for her. Dementia is a cruel and heartless disease. Prayers to you and your brother.
RIP Worked for the City and remember the ground breaking for arena. Her and Barb Adkins planning big things in Heaven now.
My mom thought the world of Judy and Bob. I watched my mom go through Alzheimer’s, it’s a rough road for all. Prayers.
Judy was a remarkable person. It was an honor to know her and work with her at WJBC.
