I am terribly saddened to hear the news of Professor Hackman's passing. Beyond just being my undergraduate senior thesis advisor during the 2010-2011 academic year, he was THE pivotal figure in my undergraduate career and the person who opened up my eyes to the possibility of organizational behavior as a career. Whatever my future steps in the field, I know that Professor Hackman did and will continue to influence my life trajectory as I hold tight the advice he has given me, and for that I am forever grateful.
