Through many changes and iterations of 24 years, Jeff Bridges has always been our strong, silent (not always silent) force observing and advising, always with his ever-present focus – the students. Tens of thousands of students have benefited from his design and clarity, hundreds of directors have learned and grown under his watch, and hours of magic have been enjoyed by many because of this man. Today we say goodbye to the man, but we will never be free of his legacy. Florida Marching Band grieves today. Rest In Peace, Jeff Bridges. There will always be a spot on our wall for you.
