Statement from 19th District Legislators on Passing of Jack McGreevey

Statement from 19th District Legislators on Passing of Jack McGreevey

It is with real sadness that we mourn the passing of our friend and mentor, Jack McGreevey.

Jack, a proud Marine veteran, worked in the 19th District legislative office in Woodbridge since 1998. His focus and passion was to serve the veterans who lived in Carteret, Perth Amboy, Sayreville, South Amboy and Woodbridge, ensuring they received the services and benefits in which they are entitled.

Over the years, we have watched Jack drive veterans to the local VA, standing with them as they applied for their benefits and then following up with them over the following weeks, months and years. Jack – who enlisted on his 17thbirthday to serve in World War II – was so proud of his opportunity to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces; he considered others who fought to be his true brothers and sisters. He defended them passionately and fearlessly; his loss will have a tremendous impact on the entire veteran community in New Jersey.

Our deepest sympathies are extended to the McGreevey family, which has been so proud of Jack’s work. For us, it was a distinct honor to know the man, to work with him and to marvel over his decades of service to fellow veterans.

On behalf of the 19th Legislative District office, as well as the many constituents who Jack has served over the years, we express our appreciation on this very sad day.  There was no one like Jack, and we are better public servants for having the opportunity to watch him work.
