Remembering Jack Friedman of the Queens Chamber of Commerce
Well they built the Titanic to be one of a kind, but many ships have ruled the seas
They built the Eiffel Tower to stand alone, but they could build another if they please
Taj Mahal, the pyramids of Egypt, are unique I suppose
But when they built you, brother, they broke the mold
Terry's Song, Bruce Springsteen
The Queens Chamber of Commerce joins the greater Queens community in mourning the loss of Jack Friedman. To honor him, we are asking Chamber members, business partners, and friends, to show their love and support for Jack within the New York Daily News Business Expo guide, which will be shared on May 13th at Citi Field.
This year, we will be featuring a special section called "Memories of Jack" where members of our community can express how he made them laugh, shared his knowledge, or helped them succeed. Jack believed that if the businesses in Queens succeeded, the overall quality of life would continue to be vibrant for the entire borough.
The Business Expo was always one of Jack's favorite events because it brought thousand of people together to help accomplish just that. The NY Daily News will donate a portion of the sale of these ads back to charities that influenced Jack: The National Diabetes Foundation and the National Kidney Foundation.
All ads and "memories" should be submitted to Sophia Ganosis at the Queens Chamber of Commerce by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
