Honoree Bio: Mr. Jack Kempler, Esq.
 
Mr. Kempler's volunteer service with Southside has truly been an opportunity to both give and receive. Over his long tenure of service with the center, he had the opportunity to make and carry out the policies that have shaped Southside, from fiscal to social to qualitative matters. Particularly rewarding was his creation, of the Winter educational evenings, making improvements in finances as treasurer, creating a Communications Committee, presiding over Fundraising Celebration events (including researching and both speaking and writing about the center's history.
 
All of these events and activities served as an opportunity to get close to our community. All of the time he spent on our community's "business" introduced us to some of the best, most interesting and dedicated people.
 
As a professional, he is the founder and managing partner of Welsh, Barney and Kempler, a 45-attorney financial services law firm with offices in New York, and New Jersey. His personal legal practice area has been the SEC and other financial service companies providing them with day-to-day operating advice.

You have been a mentor to me for the better part of the last 20 years. 
Much of our work together has been centered around our Adult Mental Health Services,
one of the many life-saving services at OHEL and each time we have had the pleasure
of speaking, I have learned something new, something special.
Over the years, your guidance;
- has helped us with complex and often heartbreaking cases that we call you for advice on,
- has helped us resolve difficult differences of opinion when you were called to serve as an
Ombudsman and you did so leaving everyone's dignity intact,
- has helped us help families in crisis as they struggle with how to best help
their mentally ill son or daughter the list goes on and on. 
 
Day and night, you have been there for us.  You have answered the phone for me at times when you
clearly had other, pressing obligations.  Anyone who spends time with you knows, they are MOST important.   
You have been a staunch supporter and protector.  I have and will continue to quote you at home, at meetings with staff and in any setting, especially where good judgement, humility and leadership are essential.  We are fortunate to have you on our team is an understatement.  It is an absolute honor to be in your shadow and under your wing. 
 
Congratulations may you merit  for the helping of clients for many, many years to come and to continue to do so with the dignity and class you have always shown.
