Denise Pape - Administrator & Manpower

Denise has been the admin for the Last Fling since January 2015. Her favorite part about Last Fling is seeing everything come together.

Ha joined the Naperville Jaycees in July of 2018.  After taking on the role of a "tent captain" during her first ever Last Fling, she was hooked.  She loved seeing so many different people come together to put on a great event for such a good cause.  Her favorite part about the Fling is seeing the crowd sing along to all the live music and just having a good time.  Aside from being a part of the Jaycees, Ha is the Events Coordinator for Fair Oaks Ford Lincoln in Naperville.
