Jeffrey Zaslow Memorial Page

Author Jeffrey Zaslow died in a tragic car accident last week. He was 53 years old.

His family has started a memorial webpage for the late author. Here’s more from the family: “Together with our close friends, we are mourning the loss of our uncle, brother, son, father and husband, Jeffrey Zaslow.  We are incredibly appreciative and in awe over the outpouring of love and condolences offered by so many around the world.  Your continued warm words are great comfort for all of us during this time.”

Zaslow was the author of The Magic Room and co-author of The Last Lecture, Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope and Highest Duty. He also wrote as a columnist for the Wall Street Journal.

Zaslow was married to Detroit FOX 2 anchor Sherry Margolis. Share your memories in the comments section–we’ve collected some online tributes to his work below.

Here’s more from Fox 2 in Detroit: “According to the Antrim County Sheriffs Department, Zaslow was killed in an automobile accident in northern Michigan Friday morning … On Thursday night, Zaslow attended an event at the McLean & Eakin Bookseller in Petosky’s Gaslight district, to promote his latest book.” (Via Publishers Marketplace)
