The following note which PRSA Chair/CEO Jeff Julin sent to NBC last night is beautifully expressed:

Dear Mr.  Capus,

The leaders of PRSA are deeply saddened to hear of Tim Russert’s passing. We extend our sincerest condolences to the Russert family and to his extended family at NBC and in households across the nation.  

During the 2007 PRSA International Conference, he shared his unique wisdom and insight into political discourse, the nation and our responsibility as citizens. It was a high point of Conference history, and an experience all will treasure.

Tim Russert was a standard bearer of communications excellence and integrity, as well as a great man who clearly loved his family, his country and his craft. He was a trusted source and interpreter of current events who embodied the best traditions of journalism. He became a symbol of all that American news can be by demonstrating his sincerity, honesty, professionalism and wit. Sunday mornings will never be the same.

With sympathy,

Jeffrey Julin, APR

Chair & CEO

Public Relations Society of America
