    Within the last few weeks, Hersh and others had retweeted another reporter's tweet sending good wishes to Goldberg, who was ailing. That's all I know off the top of my head.

    He only recently signed Jason, after the Olys, so I would think this was a recent development. My sympathies to his loved ones.

    Is Shep the man you'd see Michelle Kwan giving a hug and kiss to in the K&C after she skated? If so, I remember seeing him many times at her competitions.

    I am so sorry to hear this sad news. Shep was a kind man who treated his clients like family. He was well liked and respected in
    the skating community and will be missed.

    My condolences to his family and many friends. RIP Shep.

    Longtime skating agent Shep Goldberg dies at 65
    Manager of Kwan, Brown remembered for fierce protection of athletes


    Very nice tribute with quotes from journalists and others who worked with him.
    Includes the history of how he came to represent Kwan and to become a force within figure skating.

    ----------------------------

    Love the title of Hersh's equally nice remembrance:

    Remembering Shep Goldberg, agent to Kwan and mensch to all

    Goldberg died of pancreatic cancer. :(

    So sorry to hear of Shep's passing. Condolences to his family. He was a good agent to all those he represented. I can remember that he and Phil Hersh had some really interesting "discussions" over the years.

    Christine Brennan tweeted this picture of Mr. Goldberg and Michelle Kwan from the 1997 Nagano Olympics.

    "Shep lived his life and conducted business with loyalty, compassion, dignity, and ethics ... things that are becoming less common in today's world," Lysacek said. "He was a rare man, and a rare friend. I miss him already."
