Sad: Publicis NY Producer Passes Away

Oy, not the best way to end the day but got word that Drew Putzel, who has spent the last four years as a producer at Publicis, has died unexpectedly. Our friend Joel Simon of JSM Music sent us this note:
“The NY advertising community lost a wonderful person yesterday.  He was a dear friend to all that had the privilge of knowing him.  His name is Drew Putzel and was a producer at Publicis/NY.  All I know is that it was an accident that happened last night in NY.  Just thought you would like to know.  He was a stellar human being who was loved by all.  I believe he was around 27 years old.”
We are not sure at this point what the “accident” was, but if we know, we’ll let you know and of course, our condolences to friends and family. You can check out more info here.
