Our former board member and dear friend Henry Plotkin, who so ably served in the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, during the administrations of four governors, peacefully passed away last week and will be buried tomorrow. There are all too few people who possessed the decency, integrity, and wisdom of Henry, as well as, a fierce devotion and sense of advocacy for the least of these in our society. Henry believed passionately in the importance of workforce development and training as an instrument for employment and social mobility. We were honored and privileged to have Henry serve on our JCETP Board, where he made an invaluable contribution to our efforts.

Please keep Henry and his beloved wife, Susanne, in your thoughts and prayers, as we pay our final tribute tomorrow, Thursday, Nov. 9, at 11 a.m., at Crabiel Parkwest Funeral Chapel, 239 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick, N.J. 08901. http://obits.nj.com/obituaries/starledger/obituary.aspx?n=henry-plotkin&pid=187169245&fhid=13962
