Statement from Jerry Ward

I sincerely regret sharing personal opinions without considering my leadership role at Kosair Charities and others. As a result, I apologize to anyone who was offended or hurt by my comments.

My personal and professional life has been devoted to helping children.

Kosair Charities has helped hundreds and thousands of children during my service as Chairman.

It was never my intent for my social media posts to have a negative impact on children or Kosair Charities.

At the end of the day, my motivation has always been to improve the lives of children. I hope we all can agree that Kosair Charities is a well-respected charity and deserves our support.

In the future, I must strive to be more conscious of the words I share. I am proud and blessed to have served as the Chairman of Kosair Charities. Effective today, I am stepping down as the Chairman.

No man stands as tall as when he stoops to help a child.
