Adam Anhang was born and raised in snowy Winnipeg, Canada, but was loved around the world for his warm heart and selfless generosity to friends and family. He famously ran into a burning house to save his little sister’s favorite dress. Helping people with their problems was a passion of Adam’s. He was always the first person who people called when they had an emergency or needed advice.
Adam’s love for business was evident at an early age, when he brought a briefcase to the first day of kindergarten. Adam attended Yeshiva University and the Wharton School of Business for college. He loved to teach, and returned to Wharton often to give guest lectures to undergraduate students. He had hoped to make teaching a central part of life in the future. In his mid-twenties, Adam went out on his own, starting a consulting business in which he helped different kinds of companies recover from dire financial straits. At the time of his passing, he served as the CEO of a software company, and worked on real estate projects with the aim of revitalizing neighborhoods in Puerto Rico.
Adam’s short life was also full of adventure and humor. He loved travel, scuba diving, costume parties, practical jokes, and the antics of his two cats, Max and Nate.
