In Memoriam:

NYJTL lost a hero.  It is with great sadness that NYJTL announces the passing of Community Tennis Coach Hector Henry. He passed away on April 22 after a brief hospitalization. Coach Hector had been an NYJTL Site Director in Brooklyn for twenty plus years. Not only was he a tremendous motivator and tennis coach, he was truly a kind and gentle mentor and friend to all. Coach Hector will be truly missed and in our hearts forever. May he rest in peace.
