We are deeply saddened to announce that Jock Menzies, president of American Logistics Aid Network has died unexpectedly.
We mourn the loss of our dear friend and our thoughts and prayers go out to Jock’s wife Penelope and his entire family.
Jock was a generous giver of his time, always willing to explore an idea or lend an ear to friends and family. He was a gentle spirit, a visionary and inspirational leader. He had a passion for bringing people together and was gifted at helping people understand their shared goals.
Jock served as chairman of the Terminal Corporation, where he worked for more than 40 years before co-founding ALAN in 2005. After witnessing the breakdown of relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Jock organized an effort and engaged supply-chain professionals and trade associations to come together to found ALAN. They knew that they could help victims of disaster if they worked together and Jock was a natural fit to lead ALAN.
The board of directors has appointed Kathy Fulton, ALAN’s current director of operations, to serve as the interim president. If you have any questions please contact Kathy at (863) 559-6188, or Patrick Rofe, director of development and corporate partnerships at (360) 515-6264.
A memorial service will be held at 1:00pm Thursday, August 22 at Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore located at 5603 N Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21210. If attending, the family asks that you please wear bright colors to celebrate Jock’s life.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation in Jock’s name to American Logistics Aid Network. To make a donation, please visit the ALAN website at www.alanaid.org or mail your gift to CSCMP, 333 E Butterfield Rd, Lombard IL 60148.
