"JR is one of those rare individuals who truly lives life to the fullest and waits for no man," said Tracy Roenick, managing partner of RoenickLife.  "He is "high definition" all the way and we wanted to create a website and blog that really captured JR as a person—who he really is, what he values, how he views the world and where he's going next.  The site, which was created by Panther Marketing of Scottsdale, is loaded with photos, video clips, interviews and content that give fans a very personal look at JR and his accomplishments as a legendary hockey player, businessman, sports analyst, golfer and family guy who enjoys giving back every chance he gets."
