I met Chuck in Summit, New Jersey 12 years ago when he was in "transition" with respect to jobs, housing and marital status and I was buying my first Volkswagen. He guided me with patience and detail. He became a reliable friend. He introduced me to Trisha when they were looking for a place in Spring Lake. Through the two of them, with their feedback and direction, I was able to grown personally, socially and financially. As time went on, my husband also had the opportunity to meet Chuck and Trisha in New York City. Even though Bruce and I now live in Williamsburg Virginia, I have stayed in touch with Chuck through emails. Unfortunately, it was just today that I found out why he was not responding to those emails. I weep for the loss of a lovely human being, his smile, and the endearing gift of just being Charles A. Moldenhauer.
Charles Moldenhauer provided excellent career counseling to my son just this past summer/fall. My son found his counsel and interview prep very helpful. After each session my son had with Charles, he kindly took the time to email or call as a follow to the session. He gave my son tremendous confidence which proved to be very beneficial in starring his career. My son attempted to contact Charles to update him as to how his job in Boston is going, only to learn the sad news of his passing. We feel lucky to have had our paths cross.
Just found out today about the loss of a pretty nice gentleman. I used his consulting services last year and I think the world will miss such a man.
Charles was such a blessing and an inspiration as a SIBL Career Coach and as a fellow Columbia graduate. He will be missed by all.
Chuck made an enormous difference in Trisha's life, her quality of life and her experience of herself. His solid approach to life provided an environment where both of them could blossom. While he was here, this world was a better place.

first met Charles at the NYPL on 34th and enjoyed his personality and presence immediately. Charles always spoke so highly of you, his children (his daughters wedding), the dog and the house in Spring Lake. I also admired him for staying in such great shape and being fit working out at the gym and running races. Charles was always there for me to call after I had come from an interview, we would discuss my meeting and his response was always positive towards me. Charles was so disappointed that he wasn't able to help me land a job and it was never his fault. He helped me down the right career path and I will always remember him for that.
I had the honor of meeting and getting to know Charles through our mutual association with Columbia University and the Career Coaches Association. His thoughtfulness, pleasant personality and love of life was admired by all. His profession speaks for what he stood for-helping others be better for themselves and for humanity. My thoughts and prayers go out to Trisha and Charles' family. He will be missed my many.
Charles and I worked together at Columbia and over the past year, I've had the pleasure of getting to know him. He was a vibrant and warm person and I am deeply saddened by this news. Our family at Columbia sends Trisha and his family our most sincere condolences. He will be greatly missed by us all.
What a beautiful tribute. Chuck left quite a legacy. We are so sorry for your loss.
With sincere condolences...
I met Charles a few years ago and I'm luckier for having gotten to know and work with him. Always encouraging, he never gave up on me and made my journey to finding a more fulfilling job less arduous. I felt hopeful knowing Charles; he was always a call away. I will miss you very much—you were great and loyal mentor, and my friend.
With thoughts of peace and courage.
A wonderful person who inspired me never to give up and to keep on going.
I will miss him enormously and will say a prayer for him and his family.
A sad loss of a great man who will be missed dearly for his enthusiasm and great life spirit.
I am so glad that we were able to spend time with you and Charles...he ;left a remarkable leagcy...our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have just learned, through a mutual friend, of Charles's death,and I am saddened. I worked with Charles as a senior client advisor when Charles was managing director of DBM's Center for Executive Options. His enthusiasm, positive outlook, and warm manner were infectious and helped rebuild confidence in many senior executives who were looking to find the next role in their business lives.
Not only did you live a great life, but you also left a great family behind. REst in peace. Herma and Matt
I received the shocking news this morning. My friend Charles was a real friend, professional and scholar. As a colleague from Columbia University, he encouraged me frequently in the area of career coaching. He will truly be missed. Charles ("Chuck"), may your soul rest in peace.
I have known Charles for over 30 years, ever since we both worked at Lefkowith Inc. a communications firm. We worked on various projects together on and off in the years since. I've known Charles to be passionate about his work and someone who was full of life. My heartfelt condolences to his fiance Trisha, his children Brooke and Chip and their families, and former wife Liz, for losing someone who was in the prime of his life.
Heartfelt condolences are extended to your family at this difficult time. May loving memories bring peace to your heart. May God bring loving comfort and support. (Isaiah 61:1, 2)
I've had the pleasure of working with Charles over the past year in Job Search Central at the Science, Industry and Business Library branch of NYPL. Charles brought unparalleled passion and knowledge to his coaching and branding efforts with clients and was an absolute joy to work with. I am deeply saddened by his loss, but am thankful for the work we were able to accomplish and the joy of calling him my friend and colleague.
