Ed Wulfe

Ed Wulfe, ’55

It is with a heavy heart that we announce Edmond Wulfe, Texas A&M Class of 1955, has passed away.  He was a valued supporter of Texas A&M Hillel and its initiatives, serving as president of the Hillel student board in 1954-1955. 

Mayor Sylvester Turner released the following statement about Wulfe’s death:

“Ed Wulfe spent decades reshaping Houston into the city we know. Even if you didn’t know his name, you saw and experienced the significant ways he made our city better. Mr. Wulfe revitalized the Gulfgate and Meyerland Plaza shopping centers and successfully chaired a city-wide referendum campaign to expand Houston’s light rail and transit systems.

“Not only was he a real estate legend, he was also a civic leader who chaired the Houston Symphony, the Holocaust Museum Houston and the Urban Land Institutes’ Houston District Council.

“We will remember Mr. Wulfe as a titan whose vision and energy helped Houston evolve. I will miss his friendship and wise counsel. We send our deepest condolences to his wife Lorraine and their six children and ten grandchildren.”
