Re: Alcor announces new CEO, Joseph A. Waynick

First, on behalf of everyone associated with the mission of cryonics, I wish to once again officially thank Dr. Jerry Lemler for his visionary efforts as Alcor's CEO these past two years. Retiring from this position on December 31, 2003, Jerry will continue to support the foundation as Alcor's Medical Director and chief spokesperson commencing on January 1, 2004.

We all wish you, Jerry, the very best of ongoing successes in whatever you do, but especially in your fight against the life threatening illness that attacked you earlier this year.

It is also with great pleasure that I am announcing on behalf of the Board of Directors the selection of Joseph Waynick, who will be succeeding Dr Lemler as Alcor's CEO, commencing January 1, 2004. Joe brings a rich and successful career combining business, management, and technology to this position. In addition, he has been elected to the Alcor Board of Directors, effective immediately.

Having gotten to know Joe on a more personal level, I am confident that under his leadership Alcor will be guided to even greater heights as the world's premier provider of cryonics services.
