Today is a sad day at Fusion.
We lost a very special member of this family we call an advertising agency. Our former Creative Director Terry Kuzina passed away on the weekend after a long battle with a cruel illness. My heart is broken for his loved ones, especially his daughter Theresa who still works with us. To watch her lose her father to such an unfair opponent has been devasting and I'm trying to channel all my thoughts, prayers, love and grief into some sort of positive energy for them. But it doesn't change the fact that a father, a husband, a son, a mentor and a friend was lost today.
Terry was my very first creative director. It took a long time for me to find my way into a career that fulfills me and once I did, I was blessed to have Terry as my guide. He was a gentle man - quiet, contemplative and always with a smile. He nurtured this insecure copywriter with words of encouragement and a gentle push. I always left his office feeling 15% frustrated and 85% committed to showing him something better.
He made me want to be better and because of him...I am. Thank you Terry, for holding such an important place in my growth and my life.
You are sadly, sadly missed.
