Dr. Jonathan Green, a legal studies professor at Seminole State College of Florida for 14 years, passed away Nov. 1. He was 61.
“Jon Green had three loves; his family, the law and Seminole State’s Legal Assisting Program,” says Dr. Angela Kersenbrock, associate vice president, School of Career and Professional Programs. “He worked tirelessly to achieve and maintain the highest level of accreditation for the Legal Program.”
Business Law was among the classes he taught, but his favorite courses were Real Property and Professional Responsibility, according to Dr. Jordan Camenker, program manager for Legal Studies. Green also taught Legal Research and Writing.
"He was close to his students, and for a number of years the Legal Studies Program annual holiday party was held at his house in Deltona," Camenker says.
Green worked at the College from January 1998 until May 2012.
Green had been ill for quite some time, Kersenbrock says, “and found it very difficult to give up his position at Seminole because he believed in what the College could do for students and their families.”
“Jon Green was responsible for helping put so many students on the road to professionalism as well as into careers that helped sustain families,” Kersenbrock says.
