Majority Leader Louis Greenwald on Jerry Green

By David Wildstein, April 19 2018 9:11 am

Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald (D-Voorhees) issued a statement this morning on the death of Assemblyman Jerry Green:

“I am devastated to hear of the passing of my friend Jerry Green.

Speaker Pro Tempore Green was a fixture of the Assembly. He was the leading advocate for affordable housing in our state, and an unwavering voice for the less fortunate. I often sought his advice, and he never let me down. Jerry was a partner in many a State House battle, but he was also my friend.

I will miss him. I just can’t imagine anyone else sitting in that front row seat in the Assembly. His loss will be felt in many ways.

When Jerry entered a room, he did so with a smile, a handshake and a hug, and when Jerry spoke, everyone listened. He commanded respect, but he was also a kind-hearted man who put everyone else first. He was a true leader.

I send my condolences to Jerry’s family and join them in their prayers. Thanks, Jerry, for your friendship and your leadership.”
