A dear friend and great man died today at 77. Jerry Weintraub was my first agent, guide, mentor and friend for life. He was the most trusted man in Hollywood, a hugely successful producer who was confidante to presidents and to the biggest names in politics and show business. He was kind and loving and he will be missed by everyone who knew him or was touched by his enormous wisdom and generosity. He stepped into our lives many times long after our business relationship ended to offer advice, friendship and tangible assistance and hospitality.
Condolences to his wonderful wife Jane and the children, Erica and I weep for your loss.
