A Tribute To John
We, at Transition Professionals want to express our grief at the loss felt by everyone who knew John. His amazing spirit, selflessness, generosity and his uncompromising trust in all that is good; his tireless energy and belief in our mission. John’s wonderful sense of humor and ability to make people feel good about themselves by taking the time to listen. John had an unwavering commitment to his family, friends and, fortunately, for the team at TP. There will never be another John Urchak and for all those who knew him, even the very best of words, cannot pay ample tribute or truly capture our sense of loss...
Thank you, John
