Farewell Jonathan Resnick

Jonathan ResnickThe lighting industry grew a little dimmer September 28th; we are heartbroken to report the passing of Barbizon Lighting Company’s CEO Jonathan Resnick. 
Jonathan’s larger than life personality, passion, and energy touched many people, from his time at Brown University, to working in broadcast news, and eventually running the business that started 70 years ago by his father Sam Resnick and Sid Bloom.
Jonathan's perspective, clarity, and vision set him apart as a trusted colleague and mentor to so many people in the lighting industry. His insight will be truly missed.
In a note from the Resnick family, “…in the coming days, there will be much to reflect on and much to be shared.  The Resnick family feels very proud of and indebted to the Barbizon Family for all of its commitment to the organization, but also for joining with Jon and growing a professional business known as an industry leader.”
A tribute page to celebrate Jonathan’s life has been set up for colleagues, families, and friends to share memories, pictures, and messages. If you’d like to contribute, the web address is:
Please feel free to share the link with others in the industry.
We were all incredibly fortunate to have worked with Jonathan.  Once we recover from our loss, we all will do exactly as Jonathan would have wanted. Get back to work and make the world shine.
