Long-time industry vet and honorary Greenwood chairman dies at 69
BOCA RATON, Fla. — Long-time industry veteran Jonathan Stern, 69, passed last month at his home in Boca Raton, Fla., after a one-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Services were held Nov. 13 at Riverside Memorial Chapel in New York.
Stern was credited with building the Keystone Organization into a leading health and beauty sales agency, which merged into Crossmark in 2000. Stern retired two years after the Keystone/Crossmark merger but came out of retirement to serve as an honorary chairman for the Greenwood Group in 2004.
"Jon was a tremendous man, a great friend and a mentor. As a dedicated husband, father, grandfather and as a principled business leader, you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone like him, " Greenwood Group president Patrick O’Leary said. "He touched so many people during his life and we are all better because of him."
Greenwood Group is working with the family to establish a charitable fund, and award, in Jon Stern’s honor, O’Leary said.
Stern is survived by his wife Sandi, daughter Jennifer and sons Daniel and Brian.
