My Namesake, R.I.P.

I was saddened, and, I admit, a little freaked out, to learn that a namesake, one of the several other Andrew Jaffes out there, has died. This Andrew Jaffe was a journalist who covered the advertising business: he was an executive and editor at AdWeek magazine, from where he also ran the Clio advertising awards. His obituary in the NY Times is here. I never met him, but I was once confused with him at a restaurant in San Francisco a decade ago, when the staff expected him but got me instead.

My condolences to his family and friends.
