Nancy Siegel Death, obituary

Nancy Siegel Death, obituary

Avraham Groll, the Executive Director of JewishGen, has announced with great grief that Nancy Siegel, their beloved Director of Communications and long-time volunteer, has gone away after a short illness.

Nancy used her extensive professional expertise, which included leading world-class legal firms, to assist JewishGen in furthering its essential mission.

She was first hired to edit the Success Stories website, but as her duties grew, she was promoted to Director of Communications. She supervised all of JewishGen’s communications and marketing activities while in this capacity, where she helped drive organizational change, worked with hundreds of volunteers to promote and more efficiently manage their initiatives, and helped lead organizational change.

Nancy took a “leave of absence” from the organization after learning of her illness, but she continued to work with me and others to codify systems and processes, and she kept up with our efforts for as long as she could.

“She cared deeply about our mission, and devoted a tremendous amount of time and energy that we will never fully know or appreciate.” Avraham added

“I had an opportunity to visit Nancy in person just a few days before her passing. On behalf of the JewishGen team, I thanked her for being a great colleague, for her leadership, and for everything she represented. I told her that as a result of her efforts, JewishGen was stronger than ever before.

“On a personal note, I thanked her for her years of professional and personal advice, always taking the time to help me grow in my position, and for her personal interest in my family. Although many decades my senior, she treated me as a friend, and I will dearly miss her.

Nancy’s obituary will be updated in the following days with further tributes. Meanwhile, we’re establishing a special fund in Nancy’s honor. The funds donated will go toward the JewishGen 2.0 Project, which Nancy was extremely passionate about and to which she committed a lot of time and effort.
