February 6, 1922 - December 27, 2015

It is with great sadness that I have to report that my father, Haskell Wexler, has died. Pop died peacefully in his sleep, Sunday, December 27th, 2015.  Accepting the Academy Award in 1967, Pop said: "I hope we can use our art for peace and for love". An amazing life has ended but his lifelong commitment to fight the good fight, for peace, for all humanity, will carry on.

My heart goes out to you and your family, Jeff.  Even though Haskell dismissed the term, he truly was a legend.  His legacy will live on in all who believe in elevating humanity.
