It is with deep sadness that we learn of the death of Jean Laurent (S1967), first President of the ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation, on January 12, 2023.

A man with a remarkable career in the banking sector (one of the builders of Crédit Agricole), he was called upon in 2008 by Rogier Larrieu (S1956) to be one of the qualified personalities of the ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation at the time of its creation, assuming the role of first President until 2011.

Olivier Zarrouati, President of the Foundation from 2011 to 2017, and Philippe Forestier (S1974), President of the ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation since 2017, on behalf of all the members of the Board of Directors, would like to pay tribute to the memory of their predecessor, whose exemplary commitment made the very existence of the Foundation possible, and send their most sincere condolences to his family and friends.
