In Memory of Ajay Umesh Nayak, ASA

May 15, 2017

Ajay Umesh Nayak, ASA, 2017, passed away March 12, 2017 at the age of 31. Actuarial science was always about the journey for Ajay, not the destination. For over 10 years, Actuary and Ajay were synonymous for his family and friends. He savored every opportunity to discuss, learn, and immerse himself in the field, from his student days at Temple University, to his work experiences at Buck Consultants and Milliman, to being part of this distinguished community of scholars and practitioners. We hope that his spirit and passion for this field of study endure and serve as an inspiration for others to achieve in actuarial science.
