The Scowcroft Group Remembers Joel Shin, Close Friend and Colleague

January 23, 2014

It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of our dear friend, advisor, and former colleague Joel Shin. Joel was an erudite, thoughtful, and original thinker on American security policy. He was an untiring resource to all of his colleagues at the Scowcroft Group. His insights and intellectual curiosity prompted us to challenge our assumptions and rethink strategies. Joel was unfailingly gracious and humble, but possessed of as keen and disciplined a mind as anyone we have known. 

Our deepest sympathy and prayers go to his devoted family. We share their profound loss and hope they take comfort in Joel’s accomplishments and the deep admiration of all who were fortunate enough to share in his life.
