The following is a message from Kennedy School Dean David Ellwood on April 2, 2008:

It is with great sadness that I write to inform you of the loss of Dr. Jerome (Jerry) Grossman, who died yesterday morning after an apparent heart attack. Jerry was the founder of the Center for Business & Government's Health Care Delivery Policy Program, which he directed during the past  seven years, and a senior fellow at the Center for the past eleven years.  He was an insightful and energetic man, with broad-ranging talents and interests. His long and distinguished career included years as the CEO of the New England Medical Center, where he was a founder of the Tufts Associated Health Plan, and also as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. He will be sorely missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Barbara, and his children, Elizabeth, Katherine and Amelia.
