N.J. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Bracken's statement:
The passing of Al Koeppe is a deep loss to the state, the Chamber, and me personally. Simply said, Al was one of the finest people I had ever met in my career. He always put the interest of others ahead of himself and worked diligently to make our state a better place. The importance of his contributions to the New Jersey community are immeasurable and the example he set as a leader is the standard we should all aspire to achieve. This is a sad day but I know I am speaking for many people in saying that I am grateful for having had Al in my life. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.
