Welcome to Western PA Kidney Support Groups
With deep sadness, we share the news that our good friend, Jack Silverstein, President of The Western PA Kidney Support Groups, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 13, at home with his loving family. Jack lived his life with passion and cause to support those living a life with in need of a second chance. He spent countless hours spreading awareness about the importance of donation and teaching how to live a life with a transplant. Jack helped facilitate the kidney support groups in our region and was recognized for his service by the National Kidney Foundation last year as a recipient of the Small Hands Big Heart award. He also was a member of Team Alleghenies, competing in golf and bowling, traveling across the United States and on the World level. Jack would be found volunteering at local area hospitals sharing his experience with transplants and promoting the support groups.
Jack's legacy will never be forgotten, even upon death, he gave...he helped others in need of donation. He continues to be a hero to someone in need. Donating tissue so someone can live and his liver for research. Jack's legacy will not be forgotten. Jack will be greatly missed throughout the transplant community.
