Jennifer Prosek a managing partner at Prosek partners wrote, “David Wells, my friend, and partner in business, shocked us with his passing this weekend. We are devastated for his family and his friends and for all his colleagues at Prosek and beyond. He was one of the most talented communicators in his field and a savvy businessman. He was funny, kind, and big-hearted.
She added, “He loved his work and his life to mesh in the best ways, and because of that, we were very, very close. David loved to take the stage. So at the SuperReturn Berlin conference last year when we were asked to get on stage at the last minute and fill the void created by a speaker who bowed out, he did it with ease.
“It was one of my fondest memories of our easy, fun dynamic. David dove into every experience with enthusiasm and confidence. His stamp will be forever all over our firm, first as a client and then as a partner and always as a friend,” Jennifer Prosek concluded.
