(Chicago, IL) — June 6, 2011. TASC Board Treasurer Noel Dennis, who had served on TASC’s board of directors since 1983, passed away on June 3. He was 68.
“Noel understood TASC from our roots,” said TASC President Pamela F. Rodriguez. “He first came in contact with TASC in the late 70s when he was a sheriff’s deputy. He went on to become a lawyer and soon thereafter a member of TASC’s board.”
A U.S. Army veteran and graduate of the John Marshall Law School, he practiced law in Illinois for more than 35 years.
“Thanks to his keen knowledge of the law and his commitment to TASC’s work, Noel was instrumental in our agency’s growth and development over the past three decades,” recalled Rodriguez. “He volunteered his legal expertise in a range of areas, from advocating for just processes for TASC clients in court to offering legal counsel when we purchased our offices on Halsted Street and Roosevelt Road in Chicago.”
Over the past few years, Dennis continued to serve on the board despite a battle with cancer.
“Noel was part of our TASC family for many years, and he was a personal friend,” she said. “We will miss him.”
