Creator, Publisher of FEDmanager Dies at 75
FEDmanager mourns the loss of George Jerome (Jerry) Shaw, Jr., an original creator and publisher of the FEDmanager e-newsletter, beginning in January 1998.
Shaw passed away late last week in the presence of his wife, children, and several grandchildren.
Shaw was also one of the founding members of the Senior Executives Association, and served as SEA’s first President in 1980. He remained in the role until 1982, before leaving SEA to enter private law practice as a founder of the law firm Neill, Mullenholz & Shaw (now Shaw, Bransford & Roth P.C.). A short time thereafter he became SEA’s General Counsel, a position he held from 1983-2003.
SEA President Emeritus Carol Bonosaro, speaking at his retirement dinner from the law firm in 2007, cited the breadth of his accomplishments on behalf of SEA, noting that “Jerry’s vision, his work on the Hill, his deep commitment to the career executive service left a lasting legacy of tremendous accomplishment.”
In addition to his work with SEA, Shaw founded in 1982 the Public Employees Roundtable (PER), a consortium of good government organizations representing civil servants and retirees from all levels of government throughout the country. With member organization and Congressional support, along with the PER he started Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) in 1985.
Shaw was also a founder of the Federal Employees Education and Assistance Fund (FEEA) in 1984, a charitable and educational organization that provides assistance to federal employees, their dependents and survivors.
To those seeking to honor and celebrate Jerry’s memory, we ask that you consider making a charitable donation in his name to FEEA – which has provided more than $13 million in scholarships and $12 million in emergency financial assistance since its inception.
