Ben Coplan helped countless people find meaningful employment

PUTNEY — I couldn't read about Ben Coplan's passing without saying at least this: While at the Vermont Association of Business Industry and Rehabilitation (VABIR), Ben helped countless people, including myself, find meaningful employment because he understood people and deeply understood our community.

He helped me find work twice. The second time, I was a very discouraged single dad with two children, out of work again and feeling worthless.

Ben sat down with me and started making phone calls one afternoon. He went to bat for me and didn't stop until he got me an interview, which led to the longest and most rewarding job I ever held.

Thank you, Ben Coplan.
