2005 is only a quarter through and already it has been full of memorable events. And so, as the year progresses and we are busy with new projects and thoughts of spring, it is also a time of reflection.

JRS Architect, P.C. is celebrating its 19th year. The firm, which started out in a lower level of a building now, boasts two highly staffed offices in Mineola, New York and Princeton, New Jersey. The New York office is housed in a two-story building designed, built and owned by JRS Architect, P.C. John Sorrenti, along with his partners Alex Hadjiyane and Rob Morrisey have guided the firm to its position as one of Interior Design Magazine’s “Top 100 Giant Firms,” in the United States.
We are also pleased to announce that Margaret M. Grace, C.F.O. and Frances Consoli, AIA have become associates of the firm.

This year has also sadly included the passing of one of our own. Karen Kellner passed away on March 3, 2005. As Director of Business Development, Karen was often the first person to represent JRS to a new client and as such she had a lasting effect on all she met. She was persistent in her pursuit of a client and would often continue the relationship into the project phase and beyond. She was quick with a hearty and robust laugh that would resonate throughout the room. We all knew she loved her dog Chloe, and was very active in The Make A Wish Foundation and CoreNet Global. But, we did not know how deeply her generosity extended to the people of her church and community. In a quiet way Karen was heroic. Beyond her work, her friends and her family Karen had another life. We learned that Karen prepared and delivered meals to the less fortunate. She organized a yearly coat drive in the winter. She gave of herself, her time, and her heart to those that were less fortunate than her. More important, she gave without asking for recognition or acknowledgement. What Karen has left with us is a lot of memories, the resonance of her unforgettable laugh and the understanding that there is more to a person than you see from 9-5 in the office.

We would like to extend our appreciation for the thoughtfulness and expressions of sympathy extended to our office during this sorrowful period.
