“The family is extremely saddened by Tom’s death. While the world knew him as one of the pioneers in the private equity business and a successful businessman, we knew him as a devoted husband, father, grandfather, sibling, friend and philanthropist who always put others’ needs before his own.
“Our hearts are broken. We ask that our privacy be respected and that we be allowed to grieve.”
Lee was close to the Clintons:
“After officially pulling out of the race and endorsing Senator Barack Obama on June 7, it appears that Senator Clinton, along with former President Bill Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea, have sequestered themselves at the oceanfront manse of Thomas H. Lee, a billionaire investor and friend of the Clintons, according to a Democratic Committee source.”
