Remembering UW-Green Bay friend Jerome Quinn

Jerome Quinn, 99, died last Friday (Feb. 29) in Green Bay. A member of the city council, county board and board of education, he was perhaps best known as a 20-year representative in the State Assembly, where he was an advocate for locating the new UW campus in Green Bay. His son told the Green Bay Press-Gazette, “(They) got it here and that created a lot of jobs, and meant a lot to a lot of these students through the years.”
