Marie Louis, Chief Operating Officer of BUILD, 1972-2011

Atlantic Yards Report

2011 goes out on a somber note.

Marie Louis, Chief Operating Officer of Atlantic Yards Community Benefits Agreement signatory BUILD (Brooklyn United for Innovative Local Development), died December 23, 2011, after a six-month battle with cancer.

Her family asked that, in her honor, people register to be bone marrow donors.

I'll write more about Louis at a later date, but want to share the obituary, provided by her family, which appears in this week's Our Time Press. It also was distributed at her funeral service this week.
