Remembering Silver Lake's Counselor and Friend, Jimmy Lee

“All of us at Silver Lake are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of our enormously respected adviser and cherished friend, Jimmy Lee. He was present at the creation of our firm and through his unmatched talents served as a wise counselor to Silver Lake on our largest and most challenging investments over the past fifteen years. Far more than just a legendary deal-maker, Jimmy was one of the pioneers and innovators of the entire private equity industry. More importantly, he was a truly great friend and mentor who personified the JP Morgan value system of conducting first class business in a first class way. He made invaluable contributions to Silver Lake as a business but also to our firm’s culture, vision and leadership. His example of integrity and judgment and his abiding friendship will always be part of Silver Lake.”
