The City of Aurora lost a good friend and perpetual promoter
with the passing of Jack Burge on Friday, November 15. Jack’s vast networks,
entrepreneurial spirit, and genuine enthusiasm for this city led him to bring
incredible economic growth to us in the last decade. As Economic Development
Director, Jack was Aurora’s “advocate-in-chief,” and his engaging personality
and deep knowledge of business and industry needs provided the kind of advice
and encouragement which benefitted the city and business alike.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday,
November 23, 2019, at The Church in Aurora.
Jack will be sorely missed.
