“Judd was a gift to StreetWise. As one of the agency’s founding board members he served StreetWise selflessly for twenty years. His dedication of time and resources to the betterment of this agency is irreplaceable and his compassion for those in need is unmatched. There is a great deal of sadness here at the StreetWise office as staff and board members who have worked with Judd for many years mourn this loss. The StreetWise participants, staff and board will cherish Judd’s memory for years to come.” – Jim LoBianco, StreetWise Executive Director
“Judd Horwitz always had a kind word and wore a big smile. He was a good person and a fine gentleman who cared for others who were less fortunate.” – Judd Lofchie, StreetWise Founder
“Judd really loved StreetWise and came to all of the events. He gave of his time and rarely missed a meeting. And he worked tirelessly with our auditor every year to complete our annual audit. Judd Horowitz will be greatly missed by myself and all of the Directors of StreetWise – as well as the staff and vendors. StreetWise sends its deepest sympathies to his wife, children, family and friends. [He] will be missed, but never forgotten for all that he did for StreetWise and for others. He was a great man.” – Pete Kadens, Vice-Chair, Board of Directors
“His loss is heartbreaking and sad on many levels. One that stands out is how many people probably don’t know what he has done for StreetWise, selflessly for so long. He’s probably happy it is that way, as surely that was his style. But I’m still tugged by the thought: ‘If only people knew what Judd and his quiet devotion meant to StreetWise…’ ” – Bruce Crane, Board Member and Former Executive Director
