CNBC's "Futures Now" team is very sad to report that Rich Ilczyszyn died Saturday at age 46.
Rich was a valued contributor to "Futures Now," where his wit, energy and intelligence made him an integral part of the team. More importantly, Rich was a truly kind and decent individual, and a family man through and through.
As executive producer of "Futures Now," I take enormous pride not only in having worked with him, but also in being able to have called him a friend.
The family said the apparent cause of death was a pulmonary embolism, Rich's colleague at iiTrader Bill Baruch said on Tuesday.
He is survived by his wife, Kelly, daughters Sydney and Hannah, and son Logan.
