In Memory: Gabe Zimmerman
National Association of Social Workers member Gabe Zimmerman was among those killed in Arizona during a shooting at a public event held by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ).
Zimmerman, MSW, was director of community outreach for the congresswoman, who was shot in the head and remains in critical condition. This Azcentral.com article mentions the great work Zimmerman did in his community.
“Gabe was a master at dealing with people,” Giffords’ spokesman C.J. Karamargin said. “He truly cared about helping people. There were no politics involved in this.”
Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) ordered the Capitol flag be flown at half mast Jan. 9 in Zimmerman’s honor (Click here to read a cafesentido.com article).
