In memory of Maître Jacques Loesch CBE
It is with great regret and deep sadness that I give notice of the death of Jacques Loesch, the British Chamber of Commerce for Luxembourg’s Honorary Chairman, dear friend and valued colleague. Jacques passed away on September 5th.
Jacques, a co-founder of the British Chamber of Commerce in 1992, served as Honorary Counsel from 1992-2012 when he was appointed Honorary Chairman as a show of respect for all the work he had done for the BCC. Jacques will be remembered for his professionalism, dedication and for the warmth and wisdom of his advice and support. Everyone who knew Jacques has been deeply saddened by his death.
Jacques had a long association with Britain and British people. He was decorated with the title of Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 1992 for and was also Honorary President of the British Luxembourg Society.
On behalf of the BCC I would like to extend our sincere condolences to Jacques’ family and friends. Jacques has left a lasting impression on those that knew him and many of us are the better for having known and worked with him. He will be missed.
