This Christmas brought difficult news.
My friend Dax Tejera passed away suddenly.
He was the Executive Producer of ABC News’ This Week with George Stephanopoulos.
Dax and I went to Dartmouth College together.
We were in the same fraternity.
Σ In fact, he was my “little brother” which meant that I was supposed to be his mentor as he joined the house. Not that he needed one, of course.
There were many nights of deep conversations – and drinks.
When I was in London for graduate school, he was came through town.
🍸 We chilled at a few Cuban bars and drank mojitos together.
Over the years we kept in touch.
💫 He was a rising star in the news world.
And I usually had some (in my opinion) newsworthy project I’d flip to him 🙂
Dax had incredible energy, verve, and good humor.
He was a force. 💪
It was a pleasure to be in his company.
He was utterly unique and incredibly sharp.
To be in his company was to know a gentleman.
He was an ideas guy.
And a doer.
I’m going to miss you, little brother.
My condolences to his family, including his wife and two young children.
Peace be with them. 🙏🏽
