I am deeply saddened by the loss of my friend and colleague. Mitch was an outstanding individual both personally and professionally. I had the privilege to work with Mitch at JCM during which I also had the honor to get to know him as a friend. Not only was he smart, ambitious and dedicated to his profession, he was unwavering in his consideration and appreciation of other people. He was a total gentlemen; always thoughtful, considerate, positive in nature and very refined. I will never forget you Mitch. You and your family will remain always in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you and all whose lives that you have touched. You are so missed.

My sincere love, sympathy & respect,

Christine Monterosso

I came to know Mitch 3-1/2 years ago when I came to KeyBanc. I quickly found Mitch to be a very bright and insightful young analyst. Not long afterwards, I came to know him as a friend. He was as passionate and thoughtful about our business as anyone I have known . In addition he was just a great guy. I will miss him. My most sincere sympathies to the entire Wurschmidt family.

I had the pleasure of working with Mitch for the last 10 years and he truly was one of the kindest persons I have ever met. I watched him develop from a junior associate into a very strong senior analyst and he helped make me a better salesperson along the way through his deep understanding of the energy sector…but most of all, I remember him for the friendship that we enjoyed including playing basketball at the Y and sharing a laugh on our commute into work each day.

Our deepest condolences to Crystal, Owen, Jude, Austin and the entire Wurschmidt and Taylor families. Rest in peace Mitch.

I have but one memory of Mitchell and he was just barely old enough to walk at the time. That is how I will always remember him: alive with joy and promise. My heart is with you today as you lay him to rest. Blessings on the Wurschmidt family.
