(CBS Connecticut) — Travelers Executive Chairman of the Board and former CEO Jay Fishman has died.

Fishman had been diagnosed with ALS.

He played a key role in bringing Travelers on board as the title sponsor of the Travelers Championship golf tournament in Cromwell.

He took part in an ALS fundraiser connected with the tournament on August 5.

“We are greatly saddened by the loss of our esteemed colleague and friend. Our thoughts are with his wife Randy and the entire Fishman family during this difficult time,” said John H. Dasburg, who succeeds Mr. Fishman as non-executive Chairman of the Board in a written statement. “Jay was an inspirational leader, and he built a management team that has established Travelers as a clear industry leader. Jay will be missed by the entire Travelers family.”
