I just received word that LAUSD Committee member, Jack Moscowitz has passed away, unexpectedly.
He will be sorely missed by everyone.
I've included this video from an LAUSD oversight committee, it shows the beginning of a meeting (Jack introduces himself about 30 seconds in) that Jack chaired - demonstrating his humor, compassion and intellect.
Thank you for being a tireless advocate for Educators, Jack, may you Rest In Peace.
Services will be held Thursday, December 12,2013 at 10 am, Mount Sinai
Memorial Parks and Mortuaries - Hollywood Hills, (800) 600-0076. In lieu of

Associated Administrators of Los Angeles.
From Steve Schullo - Fellow Committee Member (and friend of Jack) - Blog Post.
All of us on the 457b/403b oversight advisory committee are shocked and saddened by Jack Moscowitz’s sudden death.
The retired principal of one of the biggest high schools in our district, Los Angeles Unified School District, Jack was a natural leader and our committee’s alternate Chair. He represented the administrators’ union from the onset of our committee in 2006. I had the privilege of sitting with Jack on the ad hoc committees to select our financial consultant and our 457b TPA. He was eager to learn, asked questions and challenged other committee members to be clear with motions and other committee business.
Jack was well respected by all and an absolutely united and integral part of our committee’s vision and commitment to reform and improve our district’s defined contribution plans. Jack was an unwavering fighter for all LAUSD employees whether administrators, teachers, teachers’ assistants, police or custodians in many other educational causes too. His inspiration and drive for excellence will live on through us who knew and worked with Jack.
