R.I.P. John Kemper, who passed away on June 13th, 2012. He was the NPC National Vice-President, the NPC New Jersey State Chairman, an NPC Promoter, an NPC/IFBB Judge, and the creator of The World Famous Diamond Gym, New Jersey. Today is truly a sad day, and we all offer our condolences to his family.

John Kemper was born on July 31, 1944 in Newark, New Jersey. He competed in a number of bodybuilding contests from 1963 until 1983 (where he won the NPC Masters Nationals Overall and Heavyweight). He was very active in the NPC (National Physique Committee), and was just seen this past weekend at a contest.

It is rumored that he had a heart attack at home, and was actually working out earlier in the gym in the morning. He will be missed.
