Rajiv Dant


An update on the sudden passing of Rajiv Dant

The family has returned from Australia where Rajiv’s remains were cremated and distributed at sea. His brother and sister from India and his brother from Connecticut were able to attend the service along with Neelam, Trish, and her husband, Mark.

I talked with Neelam and she seems to be coping reasonably well under the circumstances. The family will accept phone calls, however, the family asks for privacy regarding personal visits. The home phone number is: +1 405-801-2003.

A memorial fund has been established in Rajiv’s name to support Marketing and Supply Chain Management doctoral students. The family kindly requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Rajiv Dant fund.

Check contributions should be made to: OU Foundation. The memo line on a check should say: Rajiv Dant Fund #0033364.

The OU Foundation address is:

The University of Oklahoma Foundation
100 Timberdell Road
Norman, OK 73019-0685

Online donations may be given at this address:


The Journal of Retailing has prepared a eulogy that will appear in the next issue.
