By ELINOR J. BRECHER

The Miami Herald

Greg Kouri, who co-founded the e-commerce payment service PayPal, died unexpectedly in New York City on Saturday. He was 51, a native of Canada, and lived in Miami Beach.

Jack Abdo, a prominent South Florida developer and a paternal cousin, said that Kouri succumbed to a heart attack shortly after arriving at a hospital emergency room.

Abdo said that Kouri and his wife, Jean Marie, have two children.

“He was a founding guy in Silicon Valley,’’ Abdo said, and after making a fortune with PayPal, became a venture capitalist for technology companies.

Services will be held in Montreal on Friday.
