In Memory of Jeanne M. Lynch, Professor of Management Emerita

Dave Aiello wrote, "Earlier today, Dean Wellington '83 called to tell me that Dr. Jeanne Lynch, Professor Emerita of the Lally School of Management, died on Sunday, October 7. Dr. Lynch was a great professor who made a huge impact on Dean's education and career, and she did the same for me."

"When I was at Rensselaer, Dr. Lynch taught the Principles of Entrepreneurship and Strategy & Policy courses. She was critical to the successful development of the business plan for my company, CTDATA."

"I want to express my deepest sympathy to Dr. Lynch's family, her friends, and especially to Dean Wellington. All of us who knew her will never forget her. I will ask members of the faculty, staff, and alumni of Rensselaer to join me in setting up a suitable tribute to her and her life's work."

Here is the obituary that appeared in the Troy Record on October 9:

Burial Mount Auburn Cemetary, Cambridge, MA.
