It is with great sadness that the CLA-RPLS announces that its member and regular contributor Joshua (Josh) Genser, passed away on August 23, 2021 from a sudden heart attack. As is reflected in his article submitted for this issue of the e-news, Josh was a curious mind, a smart problem solver, and a tenacious advocate.
Josh’s co-workers at Overaa Construction appreciated his incredible talent to make the legalese understandable, and his teacher’s spirit in helping Overaa and its employees navigate the construction industry’s pitfalls. Josh was civically involved in many issues in his community and regularly advocated for myriad charitable interests that advanced his profession and his community, including Richmond Promise, the Richmond Community Foundation, Richmond Art Center, Bay Area Rescue Mission, Salesian Boys and Girls Club and many more. He will be missed.
