Sad to report.
Alan D. Cohn, a Morgan Stanley Smith Barney executive who spent 61 years at the brokerage and its pre-merger entities while forging a second career as a promoter of jazz music, has died.
He was 84.
Cohn, an avid pianist, was a founding board member of Jazz at Lincoln Center, the organization led by musician Wynton Marsalis, his wife said today in a telephone interview. He was the board’s treasurer and chairman of its finance committee.
“He had a passion for jazz,” his wife said. “He just loved living in New York. He could go out every night. He said he never wanted to leave.”
The Harvard University-educated wealth manager was a Managing Director at Wertheim before it merged several times to become Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in 2009. Three years later, the unit was renamed Morgan Stanley Wealth Management. Cohn was a senior vice president.
