A family at work
I worked at the Aud for over 50 years. It all started with my mother Angela Kempel starting in concessions. Then my father Jerome Kempel started as an usher and became Head Usher. I started as a hustler selling in the stands and then stock boy.I then started to usher and when my dad passed away Max Rausch offered me the Head Usher position. Later years when Brian Schell left I then started looking after the Doorpersons and Parking attendants. Also my three sisters Judy Murray Donna Bussey And Sandra (Sam} Kube in concessions plus my brother Ricky Kempel usher. Then my wife Pat started in popcorn for awhile. My daughter Lori Heer in concession and after became usherette and then Event Coordinator. My son Shawn was an stockboy. Finally my granddaughter Dayna Heer worked in concessions for 4 years westside popcorn girl. - Jerry Kempel
