It is with great sadness that we notify you of the passing of one of our own, Dr. Jeff Moley. Dr. Moley passed away suddenly Sunday evening at his home in St. Louis, Missouri. 

Dr. Moley has been a pivotal member of our organization and of the field of Endocrine Surgery. He is a world expert in the treatment of medullary thyroid cancer and his research has helped to shape the way that we care for our patients. He was a Professor of Surgery at Washington University and his passion for the field of Endocrine Surgery helped to inspire many among us to choose a career in Endocrine Surgery. He has been a member of the AAES since 1995, and has served our organization as Vice President in 2008 and as a Council member and Chair of the research committee from 2001-2004. 

Dr. Moley was world-renowned for his scientific research and expertise in the endocrine surgical field.
