My Namesake, R.I.P.

I was saddened, and, I admit, a little freaked out, to learn that a namesake, one of the several other Andrew Jaffes out there, has died. This Andrew Jaffe was a journalist who covered the advertising business: he was an executive and editor at AdWeek magazine, from where he also ran the Clio advertising awards. His obituary in the NY Times is here. I never met him, but I was once confused with him at a restaurant in San Francisco a decade ago, when the staff expected him but got me instead.

My condolences to his family and friends.

    Andrew – Thank you for your kind words about my brother Andrew’s recent death. I’m glad there’s still at least one Andrew Jaffe in the world. May you wear the moniker in good health and bring it more admirers. I think my brother would have wished you the same. – Bruce Jaffe
