    I had the good fortune to work with Ted for a few years, and I learned a lot from him. I enjoyed his sense of humor and appreciated his intellect and his street-wise insights. Regretably I have not seen/talked with Ted since about 2008, but I do think of him often and miss our afterhours discussions – biz related and otherwise.

    To those close to him – his kids, family, friends – my sincere condolences on your loss. May you find comfort and peace in one another.
