To Our Members,

It is with great sadness that we report the loss of one of our own. James Zbilski, former National Kickboxing Champion, Golden Gloves Champion and brother of President Rob Zbilski, passed away Wednesday November 18th at the age of 45. Jimmy was a great Martial Artist, devoted son, brother, Uncle and friend. Our hearts are truly heavy and he will surely be missed.

Services have been planned for Monday, November 24th at Kisselburg-Wauconda Funeral Home. There will be a religious service from 2 to 3pm, with visitation to follow until 8pm.

Please direct any inquiries to Bill Henniger, as the family is still in a bit of shock and busy making final arrangements. Bill can be reached at 847-363-5158 or by email at bill@wakousa.org

The family has asked in lieu of flowers, please make your donations to WAKO USA to help support the next generation of USA Kickboxers. Donations can be made below.
