Jack Bogle would have been 90 years old today. He could have made billions but chose to make a difference instead.
RIP, Jack. We'll continue to carry on your mission.
I have something that to me is priceless...a framed note on my wall which reads: "Congratulations ___R48____ on retiring at age 48 using Vanguard's philosophies and techniques." Signed: John Bogle.
His "stay the course" messages got me past the goal line.
Jack handwrote his notes and responses rather than have his secretary send a typewritten printed letter or an email. Those handwritten notes mean a lot to those who received them. That's how our first get-together with Jack came about; Jack asked about getting together with us. The result was the first of 18 annual Bogleheads Conferences.
Yes, I bet they took copious note in case Jack asked them later who that was that he was talking to and what was said.
I had the privilege of meeting him once when he signed a book for me. I will always remember that. He was quite a driving force for us small investors.
