It is with great regret that ISEG shares the grief of Jorge Coelho’s family, whose premature death leaves us worse off.
A graduate of ISEG, Jorge Coelho was a distinguished Alumnus, with a notable career in politics and in the business world, having been the Minister of Public Works and the Minister of Internal Administration.
He was also a dedicated member of the ISEG’s School Board.
Carlos Rodrigues, the Chair of ISEG’s Fundação Económicas and founder of Banco BIG remembers his friend and fellow undergraduate with much emotion. “This is devastating. …. Jorge was one of the best people I have ever met. For his friends, he was one of the most generous, reliable, and transparent people that I have ever met. It was a pleasure to be in his company”, he said emotionally to Expresso a few minutes after learning of Jorge Coelho’s death.
