We were married on December 1, 1968 (my maiden name was Jennifer Kosh). Our daughter, Deborah Ariel was born on October 13, 1972 and our son, Daniel Joshua was born January 27, 1976. Deborah is a reporter for the Bloomberg Financial Wire Service in New York City. Daniel has one year to go to finish his Bachelor's degree at the U of Michigan.
After Ed's discharge from the army in 1970 we went on a four and a half month trip around the world after which Ed joined a law firm in Philadelphia, Pa. He was with that firm for ten years then we moved to Denver where he became a partner in a firm. He stayed with that firm for almost 3 years then had a solo practice for about 2 1/2 years. He joined a firm which became Parcel, Mauro Hultin & Spaanstra and practiced with them until he and three of his partners formed the firm of Massey, Semenoff, Stern & Schwarz in February, 1999. Ed was always active in Dartmouth Alumni Club affairs both in Philadelphia and in Denver. In 1986 he was President of the Dartmouth Association of the Rocky Mountains and was on its Board at the time of his death.
He was diagnosed with lymphoma in August, 1997 and fought it bravely and aggressively. He had a successful stem cell transplant in February but died, of complications of the chemotherapy and post transplant treatment, on March 4.
Deborah and Daniel and I have established a fund in Ed's memory for the benefit of the bone marrow transplant program at the University of Colorado where Ed was so caringly and wonderfully treated. The address to which contributions may be sent is
The Edward Stern Memorial Fund

Ed had kept in touch with his roommate, Larry Williams. Larry visited Ed in the hospital last Fall when Ed was undergoing chemotherapy and surgery. Larry continues to be a supportive caring friend to me and our children.
I would be very grateful to hear from any of Ed's classmates with any memories they have of Ed during his college days. (They can write to me at 6157 E. Princeton Ave, Englewood CO 80111) I am preparing a book so the grandchildren I hope to have some day will know their grandfather as much as possible. Ed's parents, Belle May and Richard Stern and his sister, Cheryl Seltzer, survive him as, of course, do I and our children.
