Jeffrey J. Wong, Esq., law partner at Cooper White & Cooper in San Francisco, CA, died suddenly on November 16, 2001. Jeff was a very active member of the equipment leasing community, always ready to volunteer and share his expertise and energy. He served on the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation Board of Trustees and on a variety of ELFA Committees, including the Board of Directors, the Legal Committee and the Service Providers Business Council Steering Committee. He wrote and spoke extensively about legal matters in the industry.
For those who were fortunate to know Jeff personally, he shared with them his great love for golf and his ample talent as an entertainer and comedian. By the measure of years, Jeff's life was certainly too short. But the time he spent with us in the industry he filled with energy, wisdom, good humor, and personal optimism we shall never forget.
