Jerry Haag - 2012

The Jim Galbreath Award is presented at the Blackberry REACT Annual Dinner.  Before dinner was served, Jon Mosby asked the 2012 Officers along with Penny Galbreath to the front and read a presentation for the 2012 Award.  Penny presented the award and a gift card to a surprised Jerry Haag, this year's recipient.  The award was given to Jerry for his extensive volunteer communications service including the EC of Mountain View for over 10 years, president of the SPECS amateur radio group for 4 years, an active Blackberry REACT member and officer, and very active in the Fire Associates of Santa Clara County. Congratulations Jerry. To the right is Jerry with Penny Galbreath.

It is with great sadness that we report Jerry passed away peacefully on the evening of April 11, 2016.

In addition to his service with Blackberry REACT, Jerry was the Emergency Coordinator for Mountain View ARES, a long-time member of Fire Associates of Santa Clara Valley, a Captain in the U.S. Naval Reserve, a former civilian Fire Inspector for the San Jose Fire Department, a great leader, a skilled instructor, and a dear friend.
