Wings Mourns the Passing of Jay Fishman

Jay Fishman, fomer CEO and current Chairman of Travelers Cos., succumbed to ALS on Friday, August 19, 2016. Jay as a leader in the insurance and financial services industry and a great friend to many charities. After being diagnosed with ALS, Jay formed a new ALS research funding initiative, called Answer ALS, which provided significant research funds for The Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins. Wings also funds the Packard Center. You can read more about Jay and Answer ALS here.

Jay's leadership in both seeking a cure for ALS and in the insurance and financial industries will be sorely missed.
