Alan’s Story

Site created on September 8, 2018

You all  know how much I HATE social media.  But your heartfelt and kind messages have changed my mind, a bit.  It still seems problematically narcissistic, but this is an easy way to keep people apprised of what I expect to be a difficult bit of business.   PLEASE DO NOT POST ANYTHING HERE.  I'd prefer this to be a one-way messaging device.  PLEASE FEEL FREE TO RES0ND TO ME DIRECTLY.  After all, anything you have to say is between us,  And, as the Caring Bridge website says "Thanks for visiting."

Journal entry by Alan Kristal

Dear Friends.  I want to share with you that my husband Alan Kristal passed away on Friday night. He was a wonderful man, a brilliant scientist, a superb chef and the love of my life. May he rest in peace.  I love you Alan - Jason

If you would like to share a memory or thought about Alan, I invite you to send it to me at  There will be a celebration to honor Alan's life in May (details to come). I would like to share these thoughts and memories at the celebration and cherish them for life.
Much love, Jason
