GRIPLA mourns the loss of distinguished former board member and friend, Auzville "Auzzie" Jackson, Jr.  Auzzie practiced in the field of intellectual property for over sixty years in a number different of roles, including as a patent examiner with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, in-house counsel with Reynolds Metals and Robertshaw Controls Company, and most recently with his own firm, The Jackson Patent Group, where he practiced patent law for more than twenty years.  His contributions to the bar were numerous and include founding and chairing the Patent, Trademark and Copyright Section of the Virginia State Bar and serving in various capacities with the American Bar Association, the American Intellectual Property Law Association, and of course, GRIPLA.  Auzzie's pleasant, positive demeanor, inquisitive nature, and passion for intellectual property will be sorely missed.
