Remembering Jack Wayman: I Couldn't Help Myself...
I composed this short piano concerto and music video to honor, in memory, in sadness, and in great appreciation our incredible friend and refulgent CE market leader Jack Wayman. This is just one of many ways we together celebrate our time and accomplishments with our wonderful Jack. My words to describe Jack: "passionate, creative, visionary, heartfelt, disciplined leader" and of course "eye of the tiger, strength of an elephant, free spirit: heart and mind united as one."
It was two years ago this month that our friend, mentor, and Consumer Electronics legend Jack Wayman passed away (August 30, 2014). Jack gave us his life, energy, passion, unyielding leadership as the creator and builder of the Consumer Technology Association established in 1963, and as the savvy genius behind our first Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 1967.
