Jim Tsokanos, former president of MSL Group, died April 17 from COVID-19. He spent a dozen years at the now Publicis Groupe unit before exiting in 2012.
Earlier, he was VP-group director at Ketchum and account supervisor at Cohn & Wolfe.
Tsokanos is remembered as a "family man, industry maverick, philanthropist, and trusted friend to all those he held close," on a gofundme page established to raise scholarship funds for the education of his children, Sophia and Jim.
Most recently, Tsokanos was running Nu Nexus consultancy.
