Jill S. Docking
is honored with a  Large Paver
from  Cynthia Carnahan

Jill Docking is an investment broker with AG Edwards and Sons, Inc., in Wichita and is currently their Vice President - Investments.

Jill was raised in Massachusetts. She married Tom Docking, the son of the Governor of Kansas in 1977, they have two children, Brian and Margorie. It is our good fortune she became a Kansan.

After being active in politics and being in the middle of her husband's unsuccessful run for Governor, Jill Docking, with the support of her family, her many friends and acquaintances decided to run for Senator. It was our loss that she was defeated by 11% of the votes (an outstanding accomplishment for a first time candidate). The question: Will Jill Docking run again for political office?

Jill is always ready to do the job; whatever needs to be done, she does with foresight, enthusiasm, diplomacy and fairness.
