I was extremely distressed to hear about Ali’s passing. Although I did not work directly with him in the same department, our path crossed in many areas of work and life as we worked together with many students and projects. Positive, helpful, kind, and generous are only some of the words I connect with him. I will miss him a great deal but I will always carry his gentle smile with me as I remember him. This is the smile I see in his remembrance picture. My thoughts and spirit are with Ann and family and friends. His life touched so many of us.
Ali, we will miss you profoundly
We at the Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation had the great privilege of working with Ali and funding the GLOBE Project 2020, a culture and leadership study, which was led by this kind, insightful and generous visionary.
We are devastated to lose the friendship of this man who was dedicated to the study of different cultures and to bringing diverse communities together to make this a better world.
Ali’s passing is a huge loss for our entire community; we will miss him profoundly.
He was a gifted and special man.
Our deepest condolences on the very sad loss of a wonderful human being.

I wad fortunate to have known Ali as a friend in the early years as students. The love for life and humanity shone through his permanent smile and of his humanity shone through and touched everyone he met. Regretfully, our life paths took us to different parts of the world and we lost touch. Rest In Peace my friend
