In Memoriam

If you’ve ever emailed me about a consumer issue for which I didn’t have an answer, I probably referred you to the Texas Consumer Complaint Center at the University of Houston.  When you contact the TCCC online, a UH law student or professor calls you back.  They can tell you what rights and recourse you have as a consumer and even help you try and work out your issue with the business.

John Ventura was the director of the the Texas Consumer Complaint Center. He passed away this week. The following is posted on the University of Houston Law Center website:

John P. Ventura ’78, the director of the Texas Consumer Complaint Center at the Law Center, succumbed to cancer on Tuesday, Oct. 28. The Law Center extends sincere sympathy to John’s family and many friends.

In lieu of flowers and per John’s request, contributions can be made to the TCCC, 100 Law Center, Houston TX 77204-6060.

I not only worked with John for stories and to help resolve many of your complaints, he wrote a recommendation letter for my law school application earlier this year. He was a compassionate, funny, very wise and honest man.  The world is a much better place because of John Ventura.
