Jennifer Ilgauskas, beloved wife of Cleveland Cavaliers legend Zydrunas Ilgauskas, died on Sept. 11 at the age of 50. While her husband’s career was on the basketball court, Jennifer Ilgauskas dedicated herself to Northeast Ohio medical care. She was the owner of Rebound Physical Therapy, North Olmsted Urgent Care, Lakewood Urgent Care, and medical billing company Darbo, her obituary lists. The couple shares two sons, Deividas and Povilas Ilgauskas.
Her obituary described her as a charitable leader whose family was at the forefront of her life: “She always had ideas for growth and the never ending desire to achieve more. She truly enjoyed working and being a leader who led by example. She cared deeply about everyone she employed, and her door was always open to those who needed to talk. She was generous with her time, finances and counsel. Jennifer supported a number of charitable organizations. Many individuals were touched by her acts of kindness, but few knew the far reaching extent of her charitable work. She was a wonderful giving and intimate friend to so many. Her vibrant personality and infectious laugh will be deeply missed. Her family was extremely important to her. She enjoyed family gatherings and celebrations and made sure they created lasting memories. Above all, Jennifer’s husband and sons were her first priority. She made their home a safe and loving place for making memories. Her memory will forever be with so many. May that memory continue to bring joy to those who knew her for years to come!”
Recently, Raymond Felton and I talked about how most NBA teams are pursuing younger players that become available and not going after veteran players as much these days. Have you experienced that as well? And, if so, how frustrating is that? Mario Chalmers: I’ve definitely experienced that. And, yeah, it is frustrating – just because there’s the saying, “A team always wants a winner.” I just feel like with my resume, I’m a proven winner. I’m not a bad guy in the locker room; I’m not a jerk. So, I just feel like for me to not even get a chance and not even get a workout or nothing like that, it’s a little disheartening. But that’s the way the business goes… I’m definitely surprised how they’ve shifted away from . Those guys are very important. For me, some of my vets were Dwyane Wade, Bron, Jermaine O’Neal, Jamaal Magloire and Zydrunas Ilgauskas, so I’ve had vets that have actually been All-Stars and they’ve taught me about basketball, about family, about a lot of different things.
