Ohio DC remembers John Maurer
Ohio DC is saddened to announce that John Maurer, Ohio DC Board of Trustees member representing retirees, has passed away.
Mr. Maurer served as an Ohio Deferred Compensation and OPERS Board member for two separate terms – from 1991 to 1994 as an active member representative and again from 2009 to the present as a retiree member representative. Mr. Maurer was an attorney and retired from the state of Ohio in 1996 after a career as a state hearing officer and state tax auditor. Mr. Maurer also served in the United States Marine Corps and was very active in Veteran’s Affairs.
Recently, Mr. Maurer was re-elected to the Board for a term that would have commenced Jan. 1, 2018. OPERS will follow special election procedures to fill this vacancy next year.
As an effective and trusted Board member, Mr. Maurer served on many Ohio DC and OPERS Board committees throughout his terms. He was known as a passionate advocate, especially on behalf of his fellow retirees. His diligence and expertise will be greatly missed.
