In Memorial – Jack Kemp We were all saddened to learn of the death of Mr. Jack Kemp on Saturday, May 2, 2009. As a member of both the Executive Leadership Cabinet (ELC) and Board of Directors of the Washington, DC Martin Luther King. Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation Inc., Mr. Kemp provided invaluable advice and counsel to the Memorial Foundation for over ten years. He was also a very vocal supporter of the need to build a national memorial to honor Dr. King — someone he referenced on many occasions over the years when recounting his experiences during the infancy of the civil rights struggle. We will sincerely miss Mr. Kemp’s wisdom and untiring support of our efforts and hope his family and friends will find comfort in the coming days, knowing he was a great American and a great friend to us all. Our condolences and deepest sympathies are extended to his family. Harry E. Johnson, Sr. President & CEO
