We are deeply saddened to announce that longtime Allies (PATF) staffer Matt Ometz has passed away after an extended illness. Through his role as the Pro-Bono Legal Network Coordinator at Allies, Matt devoted nearly 25 years to ensuring the civil and legal rights of people living with HIV/AIDS. Matt said that losing 42 friends to AIDS and being diagnosed with HIV himself led him to work with people living with HIV and AIDS. “I told a lot of my friends then that I was not going to let their voices be silenced,” he said. “So that’s kind of my motivating factor. I’m trying to keep my promise to my friends to make sure that people with HIV have a voice.”
“To say that Matt was an inspiration to everyone at Allies is not hyperbole,” said Allies CEO Sean DeYoung. “Matt battled back from the brink of death more than once during his battle with AIDS, and he survived cancer. He always exuded hope, gratitude and positivity. He treated everyone with kindness and was considerate to the very end.”
Matt is survived by his husband, Phil Herrington.
