Jeremy Gold, 75, a longtime pension actuary and proprietor of Jeremy Gold Pensions since 1989, died on July 6, 2018 following a battle with leukemia.
Jeremy Gold is a two-time recipient of the John Hanson Memorial Prize, having won the award in 2006 for his paper "Retirement Benefits, Economics and Accounting: Moral Hazard and Frail Benefit Designs" and again in 2009 for the paper "The Case for Marking Public Pension Plan Liabilities to Market" which he co-authored with Gordon Latter.
Mr. Gold was an alumnus of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where he received a Ph.D. in pension finance in 2000. He was a fellow of the Society of Actuaries and a member of its board of directors from 2006 to 2009.
There will be no memorial service, as Jeremy Gold had a living wake in December. His son, Jon Gold, is encouraging people to register for the National Marrow Donor Program in remembrance.
