Long-time friend and supporter of JFS Orlando, Stan Shader passed away on Sunday, March 24, 2019 at the age of 93. Stan was a native to Orlando—born at Florida Hospital. Given his family’s commitment to Judaism and serving the community, he was destined to become a great contributor to the Jewish Community. Stanley’s grandfather, Israel Shader, brought the first torah to Orlando from Pittsburgh, PA. Growing up, Stanley was an active member in AZA which led to his interest in the Association of Jewish Family and Children’s Agencies where he served on the National Board and Executive Committee. He also served on Temple Israel’s Board and was a JFS Board member for over 15 years.

Stan’s dedication to JFS was great, so much so that he and his wife, Anne Shader, were honored during a JFS 1999 Evening of Tribute. The Orlando community was very fortunate to have such a dedicated supporter. Please join us in keeping Stan and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
