The National Cartoonists Society has suffered a great loss this week. As the temperature drops and winter looms on the horizon, we’ve felt a deeper chill, one that cuts to our very souls. Our Management Executive, Latisha Moore has lost her valiant battle with cancer.
Most organizations have that one person who works tirelessly behind the scenes, often unsung and unnoticed, who gets things done and makes the people she works for look great. For the NCS, that was Latisha. She began working with us several years ago as an employee of our previous management company, but when that firm folded she established her own company. We already knew how wonderful she was and naturally hired her to keep on getting things done and making us look great…
… Latisha has been described as “the heart and soul of the NCS,” “the glue that holds us together,” and “the oil that keeps the machinery running.” And she was all of those things, but the thing that made Latisha really special was that she cared about the NCS. Managing the organization wasn’t just a job to her, and the evidence of that is how she continued to work to the best of her ability in the midst of her devastating illness and hospitalizations. She even attempted to travel to Jersey City to perform her duties at the Reuben Awards earlier this year, until she finally had to face the fact that her body just wouldn’t allow it.
A Memorial Service will be held at 11am, December 16th
at 455 28th Ave, Vero Beach, FL 32967
