A few days ago at my office, a co-worker was reconciling an account and told me she was out of balance by only $1. I smiled and thought of Bill Kessler and said, "The problem is you might be off $1,000,000 one way and $999,999 the other way."
I am grateful to have had the pleasure of working with Bill Kessler so many years ago at SUCO; he will forever be a wonderful role model in my professional life.
But much more than a professional role model, Bill Kessler was an extraordinary role model when it came to family. I admired Bill as (an obviously) loving husband and father, leading his family through good times and bad with compassion, strength, humor and that special “Kessler style”.
I am blessed to have known Bill, he will forever be a wonderful influence in my life.
