John , I just want to say how proud
I am of you. Through your days at Chaminade, your college days
at Washington U and especially
when I hired you as an intern
and watched your eyes light up
when we showed you the enormity
Of the fixed income markets.
I could tell that it planted a seed that you nurtured to the point that you
were one of Goldman’s top young
recruits . As you rose through the ranks
you never really got away from our
Midwest values and importance
Of family.

I am so happy that you were able
to find such a great opportunity
and challenge going forward. I have all the confidence that you will do a sensational job for them John and you
are just 5 hours away from your dad
and the rest of the family.

Again John, congrats and good luck!

Sincerely. Jim Lanigan
