Remembering Senator Fred Thompson

Statement from American Advisors Group

It is with deep sadness that American Advisors Group (AAG) shares the news about the death of our friend and national spokesperson, former Senator Fred Thompson. Fred passed away after a brave battle with cancer.

AAG Chief Executive Officer Reza Jahangiri stated, “Fred was a mentor to me and I admired him for his selfless commitment to helping others. He touched my life, like so many others, and will be deeply missed.” Jahangiri continued, “On behalf of AAG, our thoughts are with Fred’s wife, Jeri, and his entire family.”

Since 2010 Fred served as the face of AAG’s advertising campaigns and contributed so much more. He was a tireless industry supporter. He advised and advocated for policy changes that made reverse mortgage loans a more viable financial planning solution for seniors. Fred drew from his personal experience after seeing how his mother’s quality of life greatly improved with a reverse mortgage.

We are incredibly proud to have worked alongside such an accomplished man with a remarkable breadth of work. His career spanned from U.S. Senator, actor, speaker, writer, syndicated radio show host to presidential candidate. Fred imparted credibility, in-depth knowledge and genuine commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. With deep respect and gratitude, AAG will continue to carry out our shared mission of helping American seniors live better in retirement.
