UPDATE: Clinton, Cosby Among Speakers at Katz Service
By The Associated Press

Former President Bill Clinton is among a group of dignitaries slated to speak at a memorial service for philanthropist and Philadelphia Inquirer co-owner Lewis Katz.

The service is being held this (Wednesday) morning at Temple University.

Also on the list of 15 speakers for the service are Gov. Tom Corbett, former Gov. Ed Rendell, comedian Bill Cosby, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and Inquirer Editor Bill Marimow.

Katz was among seven people, including the pilot from Sussex County that were killed when the private jet crashed during takeoff in Bedford, Massachusetts.

An investigation is underway.

Katz and three friends were attending an education fundraiser at the home of historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and her husband, Richard Goodwin, an adviser to Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson.

Doris Kearns Goodwin also is on the speakers' list for today's service.
