To: Rob Whittle,
National President, DDB Canada
On behalf of the family of James Lee, we sincerely thank you.
You started, led and finished this great task in grand fashion.
Your announcement speech as a chairman of the foundation was so
fitting and reaffirming for that special evening.
To the founding members DDB, GRIP LTD, LOWE ROCHE, RETHINK and TBWA
we are deeply moved by the way you cherish your friendship, your
unselfish and unconditional contributions.
Geoffrey, you started his career when James was still a shy kid at school.
Chris, you stole him from Geoffrey and started to formulate him to be a pro.
Rob, you took him under your wing and made him the best in Canada winning 6 Lions.
Dean, your video tribute let us re-live the life with James for few minutes.
Paul, I’m so sorry you lost your buddy to talk about BMX, Movies, Space, …..
Sue, the only person who can control James with love and kindness.
James, I’m sure, is probably watching us from faraway in his favorite white
background, most likely disapproving all this commotion we are making about him.
But it’s OK.
With all you founding members, we should be proud that the Foundation will produce many upcoming talents to the industry, years and years to come.
Let this Foundation be a beacon of the industry we all love.
Family of James Lee,
Ken, Sue and Stephen
