The International Center for Journalists is saddened by the loss of our founder and first President George Krimsky, who passed away from lung cancer on Jan. 20. A seasoned correspondent, George launched our organization in 1984. He ran ICFJ programs for more than a decade for our colleagues overseas. He was passionate about his work—and never stopped supporting us throughout the years.
Over the years, I personally received heart-warming messages from him. He was truly proud of our work—and of the amazing ICFJ staff.
