ROSELLE, NJ - Assemblyman Jamel Holley has released a statement on the passing of Assemblyman Jerry Green.

"Jerry Green is an inspiration for any young man or woman growing up in humble means and wondering what will become of them.

Jerry was a hard-working man his entire life; he never retired. He never stopped trying to help others get ahead. 

I will never forget his service to New Jersey, as he was focused on creating better policy and inspiring conversation on the issues that truly matter in our state. 

I will miss my friend, my mentor and the reason why I am committed to serving others.

My sincerest condolences to his wife Wanda Green and family. Thank you for sharing Jerry with all of us for so many years."
