The late Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam’s portrait was unveiled Thursday at the Court of Appeals at its annual Diversity Day celebration. There were about 100 people at the event, most of them current and former Court of Appeals and Appellate Division judges and staff. Speakers included, from left, Court of Appeals Chief Judge Janet DiFiore and Associate Judge Paul Feinman and Abdus-Salaam’s husband Rev. Canon Gregory Jacobs. Courtesy photo.

This week’s unveiling of Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam’s portrait in the Court of Appeals brings us close to one year ago when we, and the entire New York legal community, learned of her shocking and tragic passing. It is a reminder of how fragile life can be and a reminder for us to live the fullest each day. It is timely and appropriate for our legal community to remember and celebrate her life. I’m going to refer to her honor as Sheila here because I want to talk about the person behind the judicial title. She was without question a stellar judge, but first and foremost, she was a stellar person.
