Wall Street Journal reported at 2:50pm. You can google. Only report I have seen from media thus far.
Given the source, have to believe they would not push a story like that without being sure.

May he rest in peace, and let's hope that someone much smarter takes over at CSX, someone who has the desire to go out and obtain business of all kinds.

Two Train Dispatcher at Selkirk were told they job was moving to Jax so they sold their home. Then the move did not happen and both are looking for a place to live. Hopefully the relocation to Florida of the Dispatcher away from the territory they know and work will be cancelled as there if really no saving in just having it so the COO can just walk around and look at the screens and try to second guess the dispatcher who runs it every day. They will both love to hear of EHH death. He created fear within an entire industry, not just CSX but NS and UP trying to make cuts too, for no real reason.

EHH had no regard and/or sympathy for anyone but himself.
If I expressed sympathy for his passing, I would be a hypocrite.

CSX CEO Hunter Harrison has died. Mr. Harrison was placed on medical leave this week, a stark reversal for investors who had shrugged off concerns earlier this year about the health of the renowned railroad turnaround artist.

I do not usually celebrate news of people dying, but good riddance. I just hope all the damage he did can be undone, not only to the system, but all the employees he severely screwed over.

Hunters reign of error has come to an end. The guy left a trail of destruction across the north american rail system.

The Board of Directors should now be held accountable for the $84M payout they felt compelled to pay him. As others above have expressed, I find no joy in anyone's passing but after spending 40 years in the industry, having lived under management induced stress, the threat of job loss, and years without pay increases while trying to raise a young family, I find it hard to sympathize.

To all of the heartless ghouls out there it can hit you or your family tommorow. Keep that in mind when you all spout your disgusting venom.

The greedy investors who "installed" him now have nothing to show for it
but stock prices that have been outperformed by CSX competitors and
other railroads since Harrison and "Precision Railroading" took over.
