We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jerome J. Shestack. Our readers will greatly miss Jerry's continuing contribution to The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel as our Corporate Social Responsibility Advisor.He kept MCC focused on corporate counsel's duty to encourage their corporations to be mindful of their social responsibilities. Perhaps the greatest monument to that effort is his two-part interview on that subject published in our December, 2004, and January, 2005, issues, which you can find on our website at

In our experience, he was one of the few giants who walked the earth. Jerry's many contributions to advancing the cause of corporate social responsibility can best be celebrated if, during this period of economic hardship, our readers counsel their companies to look for ways to demonstrate their commitment both here and globally - a great need exists.
