Assemblyman Jamel Holley (D-Roselle) issued a statement this morning on the death of Assemblyman Jerry Green:
“Jerry Green is an inspiration for any young man or woman growing up in humble means and wondering what will become of them.
He spent his childhood in Roselle and never forgot what is was like to see people struggling to get ahead. In fact, Assemblyman Green lived a public service-focused life to improve our communities.
Jerry was a hard-working man his entire life; he never retired. He never stopped trying to help others get ahead.
I will never forget his service to New Jersey, as he was focused on creating better policy and inspiring conversation on the issues that truly matter in our state.”
