Last Friday on an icy road in northern Michigan, Jeffrey Zaslow, beloved author and journalist, died in a car accident at the age of 53. He lived in Detroit and was returning home from a book signing event in Petosky. His funeral, attended by 1500 people, was yesterday.
Mr. Zaslow was the author of The Girls from Ames, and co-author of the best-selling The Last Lecture, as well as recent books about Chesley Sullenberger and the recovery of Gabrielle Giffords. Much of his writing centered on the themes of love, commitment and living in the moment. His lastest book, The Magic Room, about a bridal shop in Lansing, was dedicated to his three daughters.
