Ted was a teacher, mentor, colleague, friend, and inspiration to so many of us in the Babson community for more than twenty-five years. We will miss him dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time. Ted touched so many lives at Babson and these will be a difficult days all across our campus and across the globe.

Services were held on Tuesday, September 27, 2011: Funeral services at 1:00 pm at Temple Sinai, 25 Canton Street, Sharon, MA 02067, tel: 781-784-6081, followed by the burial at Sharon Memorial Park, 120 Canton Street, in Sharon.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the “Ted Grossman Memorial Fund at Babson College.” The “Ted Grossman Memorial Fund at Babson College” will support the cross-campus initiative “Bridging the Cultural Divide through Entrepreneurship” which currently brings Israeli and Palestinian students together to further their education in entrepreneurship, while building a spirit of peace and understanding through teamwork and collaboration, and, as determined in collaboration with the family, further evolutions of this program, including those that may apply to challenges between peoples elsewhere in the world. It epitomizes Ted’s thinking about the power of bringing together diverse groups of people for a common purpose. Donations to support this fund should be sent to:

Ted Grossman Memorial Fund
