It is very difficult for me to announce the loss of a dedicated colleague, Jerome (Jerry) Bello. Jerry was the Legal Administrator of Mahoney, Hawkes and Goldings, Keegan & Werlin LLP, and Shilepsky Hartley Robb Casey Michon LLP. Jerry was a longstanding (28 year) and dedicated member of the Boston Chapter and ALA International. He worked tirelessly on the Community Outreach Committee, helping to raise as much money for our local community as possible - especially the Finex House, Boston's shelter for battered women and their children. Many of our members, including myself, proudly called him a friend.
Jerry fought a courageous and lengthy battle with cancer. The disease finally took its toll and he passed away on September 16, 2017. Jerry’s obituary can be viewed here.
The Boston Chapter will be making a donation in his name to the Finex House.
