Another Facebook user, Ileana, said she has been one of Jonach’s students in a Global Issues class seven years ago but still recalled him fondly. “You were an amazing teacher who reached out to every student of yours — and even students that were not in your class,” she wrote.
“He was by far the nicest teacher I’ve ever been honored to have,” said Rob, another visitor of the page. “Always happy. Always caring for others. He deserved better in life than this. I can only imagine how incredible of a father he was. Take care Mr. Jonach, you will never be forgotten.”
The Millburn school community was saddened to learn this morning of the unexpected death of Millburn High School Social Studies teacher Fritz Jonach. District officials released a statement of remembrance this morning.
