Linda Mojer worked for the USRA for many years, and
during her tenure the organization made outstanding
progress with every project to which she was assigned.
The majority of her work was directed toward the
publication of Racquetball Magazine. The USRA did not
have a magazine until Linda took over the project, and
she developed every aspect of the product. The magazine
became an excellent publication that opened up our
communication of the sport of Racquetball. It is amazing
that she was able to publish the magazine with limited
staff and financial support, and she made tremendous
personal sacrifices in her life to make this project
Linda is extremely intelligent with a desire to excel in
all that she does. Her computer skills are exceptional
and her writing skills are wonderful. Her work ethic is
powerful and professional. It has been a pleasure
working with her for well over a decade. She was always
willing to give whatever was needed to meet every
deadline she was given. I know she will excel in
her future professional endeavors. She knows how to work
with people in a positive manner and enjoys life.
I have known and worked
with Linda for over the last 15 years. In all the
years we have worked together she has been nothing but
professional, caring and quite organized. Her creative
style and openness to present all types of articles was
I must say she was very
easy to work with as -- no matter what I came to
her with -- she was always willing to make it work. I
liked her flexibility and willingness to understand each
situation as it was and worked with it.
She will be sorely missed
by me as well as countless others. She was a tremendous
asset to the [RACQUETBALL] magazine. Please feel free to
me for further information.
|I have had
the pleasure of working with Linda Mojer for more than ten
years on a variety of different levels. As head of
promotions for HEAD/Penn Racquet Sports my responsibilities
included advertising for the HEAD and Penn brands. On a
regular basis I dealt with Linda for ad placements, press
release submissions, and other items relating to the
industry's largest publication, RACQUETBALL Magazine. I
always found Linda to be highly professional and extremely
As the Director of the U.S. OPEN Racquetball Championships I
dealt with Linda on nearly a year round basis including
collateral material consultations, advertising and PR
programs for the event, production of the annual Souvenir
Program, website management, on-site marketing and PR
functions, and post-event coverage in RACQUETBALL Magazine.
Basically, the very image and public face of the event was
in her hands. Every step of the way Linda proved to be the
ideal professional Department Manager that I needed to pull
off the sports largest and most prestigious event.
Lastly, as the President of the Ohio Racquetball Association
I worked with Linda regularly in her duties as head of
communications for the USRA. I was always truly amazed at
the volume of high quality work that was produced from only
a two person department. Linda's ability to brave long
hours and manage multiple concurrent tasks was the key to
the success of the USRA's communications efforts.

Linda Mojer was my colleague when
we both worked in the Development Office at Rollins
College in Winter Park, Florida. I was the Director of
Development Research and she was the Assistant Director
of Foundation Relations. We were a tight-knit group,
working together toward the shared goal of a major
capital campaign. Many of us have remained in touch
through the years, though the group has scattered since
For several years I had the pleasure of
Linda’s company each day and was able to observe her
work habits. I know her to be a loyal, honest, creative,
thorough, enterprising and productive individual. An
excellent writer and articulate speaker, she will rise
to every challenge placed before her.
Linda has a great deal of writing
experience, both in the development arena and in her
most recent stint as the managing editor of
Racquetball Magazine. She would contribute
both to getting the job done as well as to fostering the
spirit of camaraderie so important in the
workplace. Linda adopts a sense of mission with regard
to the task at hand. I can state unqualifiedly that
Linda Mojer would be an asset to any organization
fortunate enough to have her join its ranks.
I've known and worked with Linda for about the past 15
years while she served in the positions of Editor,
Communications/Media Director and Associate Executive
Director with the United States Racquetball Association
(USRA). My first impression was made of her was when she
reinstituted the United States Racquetball Association
magazine in 1989 after many years of having no magazine
at all. In a very short time frame she was producing an
outstanding quality magazine. It's been recognized as
one of the best, if not THE best, magazine put out by
any National Governing Body (NGB) affiliated with the
United States Olympic Committee. She gave the magazine
outstanding quality regarding presentation,
organization, graphics and content.
1996 I called Linda with an idea for my company to help
the USRA host a website, a novel idea at the time. Fact
was, Linda was already ahead of me and was planning on
doing just that. Even though she had no prior website
development skills, she had a site up and running within
a few months after that phone call with literally no
help from me, other than hosting services. In fact, she
had two sites up and running. I was very impressed with
her ability to learn new skills incredibly quickly. She
is very self-motivated and has a clear ability to pick
up new skills as necessary in a self-taught manner.
has proven her ability to juggle a lot of
responsibilities with the USAR while providing quality
services. She has been magazine editor, webmaster of
multiple websites, Communications/Media Director, and
Associate Executive Director with very limited support
staff at the USRA. She was essentially doing the job of
at least two people. She is a very productive and
dedicated worker who puts her heart into her work.
Lastly, she is a pleasure to work with. She always has a
smile and a cheerful attitude. I would highly recommend
Linda to any company.
I have had the pleasure of
working with Linda on both the USRA.org and Racqmag.com
websites from 1996-2004. Linda has always performed high
quality work with professional results on any project that
we have worked on together. Starting as fledgling sites,
both were developed into graphically pleasing, content-rich,
robust websites – yet they remained simple to navigate.
Linda's initiative and
resourcefulness is exemplary, ensuring that the websites
were continually kept up to date, as well as assuring their
availability. Simply put, if all webmasters were so easy to
work with, my life as a web-host would be much easier!
I have worked with
Linda (Mojer) for almost twenty years in the
racquetball industry and have nothing but positive
things to say about her work ethic, dedication,
enthusiasm, professionalism and general business
skills. Anyone smart enough to hire Linda would be
getting a top-notch employee.

It is my pleasure
to give my recommendation for Linda Mojer. I
have known and worked with Linda since 1984, and
hired her to the United States Racquetball
Association in 1989. I was then the USRA's Executive
Director and Linda worked directly for me as a
department head in charge of communications.
management, Racquetball Magazine was resurrected
into the premier magazine of our industry, featuring
72 full-color pages of high quality content on a
bimonthly schedule. Linda also developed the USRA's
website(s) and was responsible for all press
releases and official communications, as well as
coverage of all USRA major events.
Linda managed her
department in a most professional manner and both
the website and the magazine projects operated in
the black. Linda was able to accomplish all of this
with only one assistant who developed copy for the
magazine, and it was not unusual for Linda to put in
a 50-70 hour week and never complain about her work
Linda is a very
talented and resourceful person who would be a
valuable asset to any organization.
worked with Linda Mojer for many years now in my
capacity as a tournament director, as Commissioner of the
Women’s International Racquetball Tour and the Ladies
Professional Racquetball Tour, as a U.S. Open staff member,
and as a member of the USRA Board of Directors.
I have found Linda to be
driven, creative, passionate about her work and hobbies,
professional, courteous, and very pleasant to work with in
just about every circumstance you can imagine. As a person,
an employee, co-worker or friend you can not do better than
Linda Mojer. She has my highest recommendation.

known Linda Mojer for the past 15 years. During this
time I have worked with her as part of the USRA staff at
various events and participated in her advertising programs
with the sports' only publication, Racquetball Magazine. In
my opinion, Linda was the pioneer of Racquetball Magazine.
She is one of the most dedicated and loyal professionals I
have ever met. Someone who demonstrated to me that she is a
tireless worker who continually strives for perfection.

systematic efforts to gain foundation support, especially at
the national level, with the Office of Foundation Relations

a superb member of the development team. She worked well
with faculty, administrators, other members of the
development office and donors. Her ability to communicate
effectively – in writing and personally – with internal and
external audiences was a particularly strong asset. This
included writing a number of winning proposals, as well as
drafting correspondence, donor briefings and other essential
documents for College officials and board members.

friend, and certainly would recommend her for any position
she is seeking that would take advantage of her exceptional
