RIP Dan Peterson

  1. Dan and I worked at JW at different times so we didn’t work together, but I certainly heard many positive things about him and his work. Thank you for posting the story.

  2. Oh my goodness! This is horrific news! I had the pleasure of meeting Dan when I shadowed at Johnston Wells a couple years ago in March. He escorted me to a PRSA luncheon and expressed he was new to Denver. He seemed full of life. So sorry to hear this news…
