It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Justice Thompson, a man who was a trailblazer in so many ways.  I offer my prayers for peace and comfort to his entire family. 
He was an inspiring figure, wholly dedicated to the public that he served in a wide variety of ways- from his military service, to his time in the City Council, the State Senate, and as a justice on the State Supreme Court.
He is a model embodying the true spirit of service, an aspirational figure in the way that he stood for justice and for the people over decades. As a leader and as a man, he lived his life with honor and humility, and his presence and voice will be deeply missed as his impact continues for many years.
Council Member Jumaane D. Williams represents Brooklyn's 45th District in the New York City Council.
