Famous economist Mike Schuessler is dead, his colleagues revealed.
On Tuesday morning, Road Freight Association CEO Gavin Kelley notified Schuessler’s death.
Schuessler worked at the association as an economist.
He had been battling cancer for the past few months.
Both observations were made on the sidelines in the post on the economy.
“It is with great sadness that the Road Freight Association (RFA) learned of Mike Schuessler’s death after battling with health,” said Kelley.
Kelley said Schuessler has been responsible for many sharp, straightforward, factual economic analyzes over the years.
It has also developed and supplied the road transport indices to the sector.
In addition to his work at the Road Freight Association, Schuessler was also the owner of Economists.co.za.
There he produced valuable economic indicators each month such as the Bankserv Take-home Pay Index and Private Pensions report.
“Our sincere condolences go out to Greta and her family,” Kelley said.
“We will miss you Mike. A big supporter of the industry fell. May he rest in peace. “
