Disturbing Ad Following Tesla Plane Tragedy

First and foremost, my sympathies go out to the families and friends of those that lost their lives in the plane crash that carried the Tesla Motors executives.

I found this story today while doing research for another story and am sickened at the nerve of this company that has attempted to use this tragic accident as a marketing activity and means to sell more insurance. Essentially Costello & Sons Insurance Company circulated the following email to Silicon Valley venture capitalists near the scene of the plane crash. [via]

This ad is causing a firestorm of bad press for this insurance agency, not just for Mr. Waxler who sent it out and who conveniently has his picture at the bottom of the ad.

What do you think of this ?
