Volunteer of the Year Award: Stephen Fisher

The MEA is extremely saddened by the shocking and sudden passing of Stephen Fisher in March. 

In 2022, Steve volunteered to fill the vacancy as MEA’s recording secretary. Besides being our recording secretary, Steve was a member of the Newsletter Committee, an Executive Board member, MEA’s delegate to COMRO, and active with our Retirees Chapter. He was also an extremely proactive member of the NYC Public Service Retirees Organization who is in litigation against the City to preserve traditional Medicare for municipal retirees and their dependents.

Steve will be sorely missed by those who knew him, and kindly remembered for the many contributions he made for the betterment of all. The MEA expresses our heartfelt condolences and prayers.

On June 18, at the Stephen Fisher celebration of life event, the MEA posthumously presented to Steve’s siblings a plaque bestowing Steve as the first recipient of the “Volunteer of the Year Award” for his contributions to MEA and its membership. 

This award will be present annually to an MEA member who exemplifies exceptional voluntary participation in MEA committees and activities.  In honor of Steve, this award will be named the “Stephen Fisher Volunteer of the Year Award.”
