MOST COMMENTED

The tribute for longtime Portland Timbers fan Gisele Currier, who died recently at the age of 55, shows just how strong the Timbers Army community is.

Fans sang along as Timbers Army member played “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes and they laid flowers on Currier's chair she had in the last row of Section 107. Timbers captain Jack Jewsbury laid a jersey with "Gisele" and the number "107" on the back of Timber Joey's log and teammates laid roses on the jersey.

Fans remembered Currier for her generosity and love of the Timbers.

“She’s the single person most responsible for the Timbers Army not being monoculture, in the sense of being twentysomething lads with a hooligan fetish,” Timbers Army's James Harrison said. “Because of Gisele, we have all walks of life here.”
