We regret to note the recent passing of Jack Pfeifer, MD, a pioneer in Vascular Surgery. While Jack retired from practice in October 2007, he remained an active mentor to his former students. Dr. Pfeifer was internationally known for his expertise and passion for Vascular Surgery, as well as for his endearing personality. His colleagues looked up to him and thoroughly enjoyed working with him, and he will be missed by all.
The family wishes all charitable donations to go to ‘The John R. Pfeifer Surgical Professorship’ at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor MI. This can be done via check or credit card. Checks should be made out to the University of Michigan and the memo should read ‘In Memory of John R. Pfeifer, MD.’ It can be mailed to:
