Former SEC Commissioner Isaac C. Hunt Jr. passed away Sunday, October 29. He served as a Commissioner from February 1996 to December 2001 and from January 2002 to August 2002.
"We are profoundly saddened by the passing of former SEC Commissioner Isaac C. Hunt Jr.
"Appointed to the Commission in 1996 at the dawn of the digital age and a truly transformative era of our capital markets, Ike was a powerful voice for making sure our mission of protecting investors, fostering fair and efficient markets, and facilitating capital formation remained timeless in the face of dramatic change.
"Always a thoughtful advocate for the rule of law and its fair and consistent application, Ike started his legal career as an SEC staff attorney in 1962. From then, whether in private practice, academia, or serving at the Commission, Ike set a shining example for generations of SEC staff to follow.
"We thank Ike for his passion and distinguished public service, and offer his family and friends our deepest condolences."
