Jay Kennedy, Editor-in-Chief at King Features, passed away yesterday while on vacation in Costa Rica. The cause of death was drowning.
No other news. No funeral arrangements as yet.
Just heard this morning. Terrible, trgic, unexpected news. Hard for me to get my head around it. Like a lot of cartoonists, Jay sent me personal notes when he returned a submission. He was a proponent for cartooning and had a very sharp mind.
My condolences to his family and friends -- hundreds strong.
