In Memoriam: Mark Bonacorso, President, Media Ink
"I loved working with Mark," said Jeff Hayzlett, executive and former Kodak CMO. "I first worked with him at Webprint and later at my PR firm. When I went to Kodak he bought my business and created Media Ink. Mark was so good that after I left Kodak I tried get him to come work with me again but he was happy running his own shop and living in the desert with his love, Molly."
"When I think about Mark, the first adjective that comes to mind is enthusiastic," said Larry Vogel, executive director, AR Advisors. "Whether we were talking about the graphic arts industry or just sharing the joys of desert living, his enthusiastic energy was always palpable. We've lost a treasured friend and colleague way too soon."
"Mark was at once an invaluable professional resource and a terrific guy to hang out with, but most of all he was a true friend," said Noel Ward, managing director of Brimstone Hill Associates. "He was someone many of us would talk with about a host of business and personal issues. We always shared a lot on that two-way street. Mark was always ready with advice, willing to share his unique perspective, knowledge, expertise, and help others any way he could. Mark was truly one-of-a-kind and we're all poorer with his passing."
Mark leaves his beloved wife Molly Passmore and stepson Pierce. Funeral services will be private but industry friends and colleagues will be holding a celebration of Mark's life at the Xplor conference in April. In the meantime, donations in Mark's memory may be made through www.gofundme.com/1m6gjw.
