Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy On The Appointment Of Jamie Hathaway As CEO Of Make-A-Wish Vermont

“Jamie doesn’t do anything half way.  As I’ve seen from our work together against landmines, he’s an all-in partner.  Jamie is one of those rare people who has devoted the better part of his professional life to helping people who are less fortunate.  His positive spirit is contagious.  His longtime dedication to social justice issues – from his work at Clear Path International aiding innocent victims of landmines and other weapons of war, to animal welfare efforts at the Orvis Company -- has inspired me and so many others.  He’s a spark plug, helping to get practical things done.  His skill, his compassion and his irrepressible energy will be great assets in advancing the tremendous and vital work of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, helping to make dreams come true in Vermont, and beyond.”
