the obituary published by his family.

November 26, 1942 - November 12, 2016
We mourn the loss of a successful, loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle,
husband, life partner and friend who
departed us surrounded by his family.

Raised in South Jersey, the son of
late John and Martha (Mojta) Kompa.
In his early years, Ted attended St.
Joe’s High School where he was an excellent basketball and football player.
Ted attended Villanova University on
a full football scholarship where he
graduated with a BS in Economics and
Accounting. He further went on to
receive an MBA with a concentration
in Finance from Drexel University.
In 1964, he started his professional
career at Fre-Air Corporation, John
Talcott, Inc., Heritage Bank, Union
Bank and First Fidelity Bank. In 1995,
he parlayed his banking experience
and started a commercial finance
company named Business Alliance
Capital Corporation. After thirteen
successful years, in 2008, he moved on
and focused his efforts as Chairman of
the Commercial Finance Association
and as a consultant.
He was widely respected for his
knowledge in the commercial finance
world and enjoyed a lifelong love
of spending time at the beach with
his children and grandchildren, golf,
fishing, boating, oil painting and
world traveling. A gifted athlete, Ted
excelled in basketball and football,
but it was his “hole in one” at Trenton
Country Club that was his latest
crowning achievement. All those who
knew, loved and admired Ted will
forever miss his smile, quick wit and
love of family.
