Jeffrey C. Brasor ’73

Published in July7, 2004, issue

Jeff died Feb. 24, 2004, in Parkland, Fla., after a five-year battle with prostate cancer.

Jeff grew up in Fairhaven, Mass., and went to St. George's before coming to Princeton with the Class of '72. After freshman year he worked with VISTA in New Bedford, Mass., helping underprivileged families. He returned in 1970 and was a member of the UGA and Colonial Club. In 1971 he met his eventual bride, Luz Emilia Mayor, in Colombia. He graduated in 1973 with a degree in Latin American politics.

In 1976 Jeff received his MBA from Harvard. Over the years he worked with several companies in the Northeast and in Latin America. In 1998 he was regional CFO for Verizon/Codetel in Santo Domingo. After moving to Verizon headquarters in Dallas in 2002, he moved back home in 2003 to fight his disease. Last fall Jeff received the Paul Harris Fellowship Award from Rotary for lifetime service.

Jeff beat polio as a child and never flagged in his optimism and conviction that you could do anything if you put your mind to it. To Emilia and their two sons, Charlie and Phillip, the Classes of '72 and '73 send their condolences.

Today, Feb. 14, 2012, I found Jeff's business card that he gave me back in 1998, when we were both interviewing for the same job in Costa Rica. After the interview, we were both taken back to the hotel and Jeff suggested that we have dinner together. Jeff was very friendly and loved the Latin culture. He spoke fluent Spanish and had been to many Latin countries. We had a very nice time at dinner and I shared Jesus Christ with him. We spoke one more time on the phone regarding the employer and I never heard from him again. I have that one pleasant memory of Jeff and I hope that I see Jeff one day in heaven.

Jeff and I worked together at Want Labs and Digital Equipment Corp. We also founded an investment club. He was one of the all-time wonderful people optimistic, fun, super energy, great curiosity. I still miss the honey he used to bring us from his beehives.
