EdisonReport is sad to report that Jack Zukerman has passed away. Jack was a large presence in our industry, having founded RSA in 1995 and selling it to Cooper Lighting in 2004. In 2013, he became the CEO of LF Illumination.
In 2019, Dreams, a luxury lifestyle magazine, featured Jack on its cover and you can read the story here. In July of 2017, the same magazine featured him in their list of Ultra Affluent & Influential Los Angeles Power Males, along with such notables as Elon Musk.
Jack Zukerman received an EdisonReport Lifetime Achievement Award at LightFair in San Diego in 2016. You can watch his acceptance speech below.
In 2011, Jack published, “Let There Be Light: My Life Among Giants, Monarchs & Mobsters in the World of Architectural Lighting.”
Jack was also a long time source to the EdisonReport.
