Saddened to hear the news of Tom Jernstedt’s untimely passing. He was a visionary boss, generous Rabbi and loyal friend. His contributions to the game of basketball and the #NCAA #FinalFour championships will stand for decades to come. @Hoophall

College basketball doesn’t look like it does today without Tom Jernstedt. The thrill of March Madness and the fervor of the Final Four have his fingerprints all over them.
He made his mark on Indianapolis, too. And he loved the Circle City.
Deeply saddened w/the passing of my dear friend & 1 of my mentors, Tom Jernstedt.
My dad introduced us when I was in HS & Tom had been a constant sounding board during my professional life.
Regina & I send our sympathies to his wife, Kris, son, Cole & the entire family. pic.twitter.com/8QtiueYqjG
