Sierra Club is Sadden by the Passing of Longtime Activist Jane Tousman

  "The Sierra Club is very sad to hear about the passing of Jane Tousman. Jane Tousman was a long time Sierra Club activist and environmental champion who worked to make New Jersey a better place. She was dedicated to the preservation of some of the most important natural areas in one of the most densely populated parts of New Jersey. Her work in protecting open space and areas like the Dismal Swamp are part of her legacy. She was also a fighter to clean up toxic sites as well as clean air and clean water. She was on the Sierra Club Executive Board for over two decades. She was a leader within the Sierra Club working on many issues from sprawl to being our delegate for National Sierra Club."

"Jane was always very positive and always wanted to get things done. She was always very helpful to other board members and volunteers. She always encouraged people to do better and to do more. She was someone that many of our members looked towards for help and guidance. When you drive around Edison and Central New Jersey the reason it is not all paved over with sprawl is because of the dedication of Jane Tousman to save those last remaining open spaces. She was a great environmentalist, a true friend, and a dedicated activist. She will be greatly missed, but her work and legacy will continue on," said Jeff Tittel, Director of the New Jersey Sierra Club.
