The Office of Total Rewards presents The Retiree Spotlight! Staying connected to our University of Rochester retirees is important to us. To show how much we appreciate them and their years of dedication to the University, we’ve given our retirees the opportunity to tell us who they are, how long they’ve been with the University of Rochester and what they are up to now. We thank you for your hard work and years of dedication!
Bernie Jurczak. Bernie retired in February of 2018 after working 15 years at the University of Rochester. Bernie was the Technical Lead on the HRMS team and has stated that she loved every minute of it. She misses the camaraderie of her co-workers as they were like a family. Bernie also misses being able to help out users with difficult questions/issues and last-minute requests. In retirement, Bernie is enjoying watching her niece’s son that is toddler age. She watches him a couple days a week which helps keep her young!
