A Message About On Point

Nov 6, 2014

Tom Ashbook’s wife, Danielle Guichard-Ashbrook, succumbed after a long, brave battle with cancer Wednesday evening.

Tom and Danielle were high school sweethearts from Illinois. They lived in India, Tokyo and Hong Kong before settling and raising their family in Newton, Massachusetts. Danielle was an associate dean at MIT, and served as Director of the International Students office. She is survived by Tom, their three children and one granddaughter.

Tom will be taking some time off from hosting On Point to be with his family.
