Chris Chiappini was one of the hardest-working 10-year old campers we ever had at our camp, and he has certainly distinguished himself since his humble beginnings with us. I remember visiting Chris when he was still a kid and watching him practice his (I think 5-club) pattern in the living room. Under the black smudges on the 8-foot ceiling. Oh – and he was on his knees. And the pattern was perfect – it had to be to work there! I was also impressed to see Chris – who was maybe 12 or 13 at the time – coaching an adult juggling class nearby. He demonstrated a great ability to analyze students’ patterns and identify what they needed to fix in terms they could understand.

Years later, as a coach at my camp, Chris further distinguished himself as a wholly capable and enthusiastic coach who the kids gleefully embraced. I always enjoy working with Chris, and look forward to more such opportunities in the future.

Despite Chris’ obvious abundant talent, you can still see him juggle with joy and having fun sharing his skill with others.
