We deeply regret to inform you of the passing of Jeffrey R. Brooker, President of Webb & Brooker, Inc. and a governor of the Real Estate Board from 1995 to 1997.
Jeff was an active member of The Real Estate Board for more than 30 years. As President of Webb & Brooker, the firm co-founded by his father, the late George M. Brooker, Jeff was instrumental in leading several transactions crucial to the commercial revival of Harlem, including the location of 100,000 square feet of New York State offices to 125th street.
Jeff actively participated in several community organizations, serving on the boards of the Council on the Environment of New York City, the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation and the 125th Street Business Improvement District. He was also a member of the Harlem Business Alliance.
We express our heartfelt condolences to the entire Brooker family.
The family is planning a memorial service for Jeff in the near future- details will follow.
