Tom Brown

Thomas J. Brown, 88 of Canton, MA., succumbed on June 24 after an extended illness. Brown is best known as the founder and CEO of Jobs Clearing House, a program he established in 1963 to provide meaningful job opportunities for racial minorities in Boston. In this more than 30 year effort, Brown provided 10,000 new jobs for minorities. He worked for all those years as a volunteer. A memorial service is scheduled to honor Brown on Monday, July 1 at Twelfth Baptist Church, 150 Warren Street, Roxbury at 11 a.m.
