I am deeply saddened to report that our colleague and friend Professor
John Shank passed away Thursday morning in California.

Professor Shank touched the lives of thousands of students, faculty
members and business leaders over the course of his academic career at
Harvard, Tuck, Ohio State, Babson, and the Naval Post Graduate School.
John joined Tuck in 1984 and just recently retired as the Noble
Professor of Managerial Accounting and Management Control, Emeritus.

Many graduates over his twenty year career at Tuck will remember his
incredible presence in the classroom and his amazing intellect. He
published 16 books and wrote more than 100 articles for leading
journals in accounting, finance and management. Far from complete
retirement, John was still writing and teaching, and he had just
joined the Board of Directors of Lazard, Ltd. John is survived by his
wife Diane and three sons. Their home is in Southern California.

John was a core member of the Tuck family, a mentor and friend to
many, and a passionate soul who had an impact on all that he met. We
will miss him deeply.

We will keep you posted as to any services that are arranged.
