After 29 years as the office manager and executive assistant to OTA/CTA CEO David Bradley, Jackie Dobrowolski—or Jack/JD as she is known to many–is leaving the association to pursue other interests. “Jackie has been a wonderful assistant and a major asset to OTA for almost three decades. She has been and always will be part of the family. She will be greatly missed, but I—as well as a great many others wish her nothing but the best for the future,” said Bradley, who will be retiring at the end of this year. For her part, Jackie says: “The decision to leave OTA was very difficult and bittersweet. I grew up here and it has been a large part of my life. Working with David, the staff and the members has been a wonderful and invaluable experience for which I am forever thankful.” Jackie’s last day at OTA will be February 28, 2017.
