Statement on Board Member Jerry Weintruab's Passing

Not On Our Watch is deeply saddened by the loss of our co-founder and board member Jerry Weintraub. Jerry was a committed humanitarian, whose efforts through NOOW and other charities strove to help those in need and shine a light on atrocities. He was a tireless fundraiser even before we’d truly begun, and remained committed throughout to the many programs and initiatives our organization has had the good fortune to launch across the world.

 

NOOW will never replace Jerry, but his work and impact here live on. We humbly honor him by continuing on the path he helped to forge.
