Jerry Shore, RIP

I didn’t know Jerry Shore, except by name, so I can’t really comment directly on his passing this week at the age of 88. But he was a significant force in the printed circuit industry for decades, founding Park Electrochemical in 1954 and building it into a laminates powerhouse up until his retirement, in 2004.

My friend Gene Weiner did know Jerry well, however, and he offers his thoughts on his blog here.

To the entire Shore family, including son Brian, who has been running Park since Jerry stepped down as CEO in 1996, our sincere condolences.
