    Lynn, So very sorry to hear of Jan’s passing. He was an incredible person on so many levels and was a primary mentor to me, and Connie as well, for a very long time during our careers. Jan was always in a great mood and had a positive perspective as he chatted with all levels of staff as he “walked the halls” at the office, which he was known for. He clearly touched and significantly impacted so many lives (on a personal level) at PwC and his clients, and he will not be forgotten.

    Lynn, I am very sorry to hear of the Jan's passing. In 1986, I interned in our Tampa office and when I joined the firm in early 1988, I was assigned to many of his clients. He was an inspiration for me, and I became the partner I am today in no small part because of Jan's leadership and early guidance. His laugh was contagious...you knew it was a good day when you heard him tell or react to a joke in the hallways with that wonderful laugh. He also inspired us to be healthy. I remember that he was an avid runner, and always thought, if Jan does it, I want to do it. He was very kind too. He would always think of the team - I remember after-audit parties at the beautiful Larson house in Avila. That group of partners, along with Jerry Dingle (who we also sadly lost recently), was really a unique and incredible group of leaders who shaped many careers and made a tangible difference for the Tampa Bay economy and so many of its people. Jan will be sorely missed. God bless Jan and your family.

    I had the pleasure of working with Jan at PwC! He was a great boss and an even better friend. He had the wonderful habit of composing hand written notes and leaving them in the mail slots and on the desks of our staff and those messages of encouragement and appreciation meant so much to many. I still have several of those notes myself. Jan always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. He thought so much of the Firm and was dedicated to doing his best every day. My husband Carl and I are truly sad to hear that we've lost such a great man way too soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with Lynn and the boys.
