Dear Valued Clients and Friends,
It is with immense sadness that I share the news of the passing of our founder, Jeff Lawhorn. After a brief illness, Jeff passed away peacefully during the early morning hours on July 1, 2020, surrounded by his family.
Jeff was deeply loved by his family and friends, and it is impossible to put into words the loss that will be felt by his departure. In addition to his family, those of us who have had the privilege to work with him feel a tremendous loss. He was an extraordinarily intelligent and accomplished businessman who built a company that still represents and practices the same principles that guided him when he started Lawhorn CPA Group more than 40 years ago.
Jeff was a person of faith. He was a larger-than-life figure whose energy was always present in every aspect of his life. His extraordinary work ethic, steadfast commitment and diligence to his family, employees and clients, an unwavering desire to always do the right thing, and his belief that anyone who touched his life was integral to his success made him truly one of a kind. For anyone who came into his life, he was an example for how to live and work with faith, integrity, honesty, compassion, and in service of others.
We want to assure you that the outstanding group of professionals at Lawhorn CPA Group are here for you and will be able to continue serving you during this time. Please continue to reach out to your dedicated team here at Lawhorn; however, if you need additional support the following people are also on hand to assist you or direct your request to the appropriate person.
