March 20, 2017 – Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) had the opportunity to honor an amazing woman who tragically lost her life to Leukemia. Michele Martin was a resident of Nesconset who was in the insurance industry. She owned and operated an Allstate Agency for the past fifteen years, but her true passion was helping people. Michele Martin had a heart for women who were the victims of domestic abuse, working with the Allstate Foundation to benefit women who were victims of domestic abuse. She designated her office as a Dress for Success drop off site to benefit women who need to get back on their feet. She won numerous awards from Allstate as well as women’s groups on Long Island for all the work she did to benefit women.

Apart from all the benevolent work she has done, her family was the most important thing in her life, she was dedicated to her husband and her four children. She lost her life this past January, but not before collecting over seven thousand dollars for the Leukemia Foundation. She was an accomplished woman and Legislator Kennedy presented her family with a proclamation in honor of this amazing women.

“Michele was truly one of a kind,” said Legislator Leslie Kennedy “She has done so much to benefit women, and she will be greatly missed. She will be remembered for all the great things she had accomplished and for all the lives she had touched when she was with us.”
