Farewell, Dax Tejera

by | Dec 26, 2022

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.

Ξ£ 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.

πŸ’« He was a rising star in the news world.

And I usually had some (in my opinion) newsworthy project I’d flip to him πŸ™‚

Dax had incredible energy, verve, and good humor.

He was a force. πŸ’ͺ

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. πŸ™πŸ½
