We note the passing of friend and colleague Joe O’Mara on Saturday, April 27. Joe’s storied career included postings with USDA FAS in Brazil, Argentina and Switzerland and concluded as Counsel for International Affairs to the Secretary of Agriculture, concurrently serving as the Special Trade Negotiator for Agriculture for both the Uruguay Round of the GATT and the NAFTA. Joe worked with NAEGA in many ways including on the Export Credits Working Group.
Our condolences go out to Joe’s family. Arrangements and a guest book can be found at: https://www.devolfuneralhome.com/Funerals-and-Obituaries-in-Washington-DC/Charles-Joseph-O-Mara
