MCLEAN, Va., Oct. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jack DeVere Ladd, Sr., age 63, a distinguished attorney, Dean of the College of Business and Engineering of the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, and former member of the Lightbridge Corporation Board of Directors from 2006 to 2013, died October 16, 2013 in Dallas, Texas.

"Jack provided Lightbridge with invaluable counsel and guidance at critical times in the Company's growth and development," said Thomas Graham, Jr., Lightbridge Executive Chairman. "He touched many lives and was a selfless friend who will be deeply missed. We extend our condolences and prayers to Connie and the rest of the Ladd family.  Blessings, Jack, on your journey."
