Doug & Suse have served RQU since our inception in 2011. Doug is Jamie’s “right hand aka All Around Champion”. He’s a jack of all trades, there’s nothing he can fix or rig to work! He always there serving with determination, hard work, and excitement. Suse has been one of the Dearing/Coker family’s most trusted friends for over 30 years! She is Jamie’s official “big sister from another Mother”. She faithfully serves as an intricate part of our Kitchen Staff and Administration. “Suzie Q is ‘the queen of the kitchen’ and a Top Hand Champion” in all she does. She humbly serves with excellence, strength, respect, responsibility, the most honest and pleasant person you will ever meet. When you look up servant’s heart in the dictionary, you’ll see a picture of Suse, she absolutely ROCKS!

Cody-Sam-DeTrolioCody Sam DeTrolio

The Lord called our precious Cody Sam DeTrolio home on June 13, 2015 at the tender age of 17. ‘The Cod-Man’ as nicknamed by Jamie at the age of 2 will always be her favorite young cowboy. He loved Jesus, his family & friends, music, and rodeo. God blessed him with the gift of music both singing and playing guitar. He used to say, “crank up the tunes Jam” when they rode in the car together. Cody came to RQUBC2013 and shared several inspiring songs. He had planned on coming to RQUBC2015 if he “could get off work” but was tragically taken in a car accident in the wee hours of the morning 6/13/15, four days before camp. He had planned on singing for us at RQUBC2016. Jamie and the family will always cherish Cody in their hearts. He is now singing in the Angel’s Band for Jesus and our Heavenly Father!!! ROCK ON COD-Man! We’ll sing again together in paradise one day! You will always be one of our RQUBC Champions! You are LOVED dude!
