Andrew Jessiman was a father, a mentor and a most valuable person in my life. I met him on November 14 1978 at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, Boston. Professor Westbury an oncologic surgeon in London, who I worked with introduced me Dr. Andrew Jessiman. My meeting was my first interview at Harvard Medical School. Not to miss any chance of finding a position, Dr. Jessiman drove me to several hospitals in Boston and its suburbs. I was at their beautiful home for dinner when word came that I was accepted for residency.

Dr. and Mrs. Joanie Jessiman invited me over to their Chestnut Hill Home and later to their Nantucket home for EVERY OCCASION and Holiday including Thanksgiving and Christmas. I felt very much at home with their three wonderful sons Alistair, Thomas and Hugh. When I met my future wife, Tamara, Andrew offered their home for our wedding. He attended our wedding on March 19 1981 at the Pierce House in Lincoln, MA. He and Mrs. Joanie Jessiman invited ALL my and my bride's family members for a most festive lunch and dinners. When my mother passed away on Dec 21, 1982 Andrew and Joanie were with us all the time. When my British Mentor, Dr. Paton visited Boston Andrew was the one personal guest to meet him.

All along my career, Dr. Jessiman followed me very closely, visiting with us often and getting to meet and know my three sons. When I earned the Excellence in Teaching Prize at Harvard Med, he was jubilant and spread the news to all friends including Prof. Westbury in London.

It is ONLY TODAY that I found out of Dr. Jessiman's passing at age 93. I will definitely try to reach Mrs. Jessiman. They were an exemplary family who were most genuinely gracious to me, my wife, my sons and my visiting relatives. I will miss him dearly and will never forget the gratitude I feel for Andrew Jessiman's formidable role in my life and continued support through my long years in Boston.

May God Bless his soul. My sincere and loving condolences to Mrs. Joanie Jessiman, to Alistair, Hugh and TJ and their respect loved ones.

With utmost gratitude and appreciation,

Jamil A. Kirdar
