Dear Mark
You left but will remain in each and everyone of us that had the fortune to have you as a mentor and friend . Every medical decision, every conversation with families or patients, every talk I give have a touch of Mark Rosen. So your departure will be celebrated with continuing the passion for work, the dedication and drive for improving people’s lives that you taught to all of us. You won’t leave; you will remain in my heart as a unique and influential mentor. For me and many. Thank you for that Mark.

Mark and I were interns and residents together from 1975 to 80. We were close and even socialized with our wives. He was an outstanding physician and deliteful person. We lost touch over the ensuing 39 years and I learned of his passing in reading the NYT. I hope he did not suffer and I offer my condolences to his family. Glen Mogan

Mark was my brother, and I can't begin to imagine growing old without him. Although there have been so many beautiful tributes written about him by colleagues, friends and family, the depth of this loss is truly beyond words.

I relied on Mark's sense of fairness, sense of humor, compassion and intelligence throughout my life, in so many ways. Whether we were coping with the challenges of demanding teenagers (being one and having two) or aging parents (to whom I will always be grateful for giving me THIS brother), no one else could have helped solve any problem with a calmer, more rational or more generous approach than Mark. Not only did my husband, children and I always turn to Mark as the ultimate source of medical advice but we also counted on him to say or do something outrageously funny in response to any question or circumstance. My daughter, Jessica, once asked Mark to renew her prescription for her asthma inhaler. He handed her two prescriptions -- one said "Crack" and the other "Heroin". Mark then said, "And if you want the inhaler, come to my office for a checkup." My son, Jordan, is an encyclopedia of Mark's effortless humor, coming to our rescue several times during the past few days of mourning with a memorable quote to lighten our load. I'm grateful that my children knew Mark as their uncle as well as their friend and that my husband, Jon, was able to know Mark for over 50 years -- not only as a brother but as a cherished friend as well.

To say we will all miss Mark is a huge understatement. And here are a couple of other huge understatements: 1. On June 8 (exactly four weeks ago), he left this message on my voicemail: "Hey, it's Mark. When you get a chance, give me a call back. Nothing urgent, but I got some bad stuff we need to talk about. All right. Bye." 2. The last time I saw him at the hospital, my last words to him were "I love you."

Always.

My deepest condolences to Dr. Rosen’s family on his tragic passing, much too young. He was a role model for many physicians (myself included) for over 30 years, and he was able to be brilliant, hysterically funny, productive, and practical, all in one brief encounter. I attended many of his eloquent and effortless lectures, and always came away with more knowledge and uproarious laughter. We shared many patients and every single one raved about how wonderfully he treated them and their families. He was a giant in every sense of the word, and while he may be physically gone, his beautiful soul and spirit will follow all of us into perpetuity. Dr. Rosen was truly a once in a lifetime personality, and I feel blessed that he was around in my lifetime, as his impact on everybody he touched was so profound. It was a true privilege to know him and may he Rest In Peace.

I have known Mark J Rosen since he was an intern at Mount Sinai Hospital.
He was an exceptional practitioner who was was always kind and practical. He also ( a plus) was always inclusive and respectful of ICU staff...fellows,and especially nurses. He was sought as a teacher,a clinician (as did I), friend and colleague; and by patients. I think he was the happiest when he was taking care of patients. He will be missed...
I send my conolences and prayers to his wife and daughters.

I am truly saddened by the news of the passing of my friend and colleague, Dr Mark Rosen. He was a gentleman ,a scholar and true mensch. He gave me my first job as a Pulmonologist/Intensivist and has remained a confidante over the past 27 years. Condolences to his wife and daughters. He will truly be missed.
