I worked with Mr. Costello at JPMIM from 1984 until his retirement. I can never remember a moment he didn’t have a smile on his face. I learned a lot from him both in business and personally. He was cared for by all his colleagues and everyone had something nice to say about him. His pleasant demeanor hid a sharp mind and astute business sense which never failed him. We miss him greatly.
