Tributes continue to pour in for Jane Maas, the advertising executive who came of age in the go-go ’60s and became an industry powerhouse. Often dubbed as “the real Peggy Olson” in reference to the Mad Men character played by Elisabeth Moss in the popular series, the 86-year-old died last week in South Carolina, where she had moved in early 2016 to be closer to her two daughters.
