I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Harris while he served as a commissioner at the Unemployment Appeals Commission. I will remember Mr. Harris as a kind and happy man who was always ready to share a story and smile. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. He will be missed.

I would hate to know the path my life may have taken had it not been for Charlie. He always made me feel like one of his me that big smile when I deserved it and a thunderous "You Jughead!!!!" when I needed that too. I know that I am very blessed to have had him in my life. Rest in Peace Charlie Charlie.
