Worldwide Ticketcraft Supports In Jacob’s Shoes

Worldwide Ticketcraft is pleased to help charities serving our community and nationwide.  We recently contributed to In Jacob’s Shoes, an outstanding organization located in Margate, Florida.

In Jacob’s Shoes was formed in honor of the life of Jacob Samuel Zweig who was tragically killed at the age of seventeen on November 15, 2008. In his short life, Jacob touched and inspired so many people. His friendships spanned the globe.

The mission of In Jacob’s Shoes is to provide new and gently used shoes, school supplies and athletic shoes and equipment to economically disadvantaged youth. Scholarships are also awarded to children and teens for camp, athletic, education, travel, after school care and extra-curricular programs.

In Jacob’s Shoes honors the love and encouragement Jacob gave to all who knew him.  Jacob’s smile, charisma, laughter, hugs and huge heart will never be forgotten.  Jacob’s innate and selfless gift of helping and giving to others will live on In Jacob’s Shoes.

In addition to a monetary donation to assist purchasing supplies for the children, Worldwide Ticketcraft also contributed the Chinese Raffle Tickets used during their fundraiser auction.  In Jacob’s Shoes is truly a worthwhile organization assisting over 100 local associations serving the needs of children.

PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Distribution:

Boynton Beach, Florida • June 15, 2016

Worldwide Ticketcraft is saddened to announce the passing of its long time phone greeter and sales person Jerry Love.  Jerry has been “the voice” of Worldwide for the past 17 years and his greetings made people laugh and smile no matter what mood they were in before they called.  In his former careers Jerry was a music producer and disc jockey. He wanted everyone to hum a tune all day every day.

Erik Covitz, President of Worldwide Ticketcraft said, “Jerry was our friend, colleague, advisor, calming influence, cheerleader and maintained the most positive upbeat attitude of any individual I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.”

Jerry joined Worldwide Ticketcraft in 1999, the year the company was founded.  He ensured calls were answered by a person and not a machine.  Jerry truly enjoyed greeting callers and often people would say, “tell me more about the wonderful guy that just answered the phone.”
