Washington, D.C. —Today, Congressman Duncan Hunter paid tribute to Walter Zable, founder, Chief Executive and Chairman of San Diego’s Cubic Corporation, following news of his death calling him "a respected and admired business leader in the San Diego community, who created quality jobs for families and demonstrated unmatchable goodwill through his many charitable commitments."

"Walter’s legacy will continue to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs who will recall his example, the types of relationships he fostered over decades in businesses and his perseverance in starting a company that is now a global leader on multiple fronts.  Walter will be missed, but he leaves behind a legacy that will continue to inspire others for years to come.”
