According to Larry Fischer at DirectNavigation.com, a well known domain space veteran has passed away. Igal Lichtman was a very successful business man and domain name investor. Many will remember him from forums and from his whois where he left his mark as Mrs. Jello. He had an inspiring portfolio with many gems such as grass.com, heartattack.com, fireplace.com and more. He was involved in launching two parking companies (domainspa.com and trafficmedia.com), advertising companies and even a geo site at Jerusalem.com. He was also a very successful entrepreneur in the software business in the 90s. His work in the software industry can be found at wikipedia.
I’m sure there is much more to Igal on a personal level, but it’s a sobering reminder that one day we all expire.
RIP Igal and may your domains auto-renew forever.
If you’d like to know more about Lichtman, he was covered recently in a DNJournal story.
