We were saddened to share the news of our founder, colleague and friend Mark MaGrann’s passing on April 3, 2019. With much pride however, we reflected on his impact and accomplishments and shared a
page in memory of him
on our website. The sentiments and kind words sent about Mark since then have been overwhelming and we hope to honor him now by copying a few of your messages below:
"It is a sad day indeed to lose such an amazing gentleman, professional, advocate, and friend with such integrity, passion, energy, and love for life, clients, employees, friends and family!"
- Amy Martino
"Mark was such great guy and a wonderful supporter of MEND and our affordable housing mission in the Burlington County region."
- Matthew Reilly Pres/CEO, MEND
"Mark will be remembered as a passionate leader and pioneer in his field. He had vision and was always a team player and a one of a kind person."
- Tom Paparone
"Mark will be missed. He had a thoughtful and kind approach in all of our many dealings over the years. He was an important advocate for energy conservation and sustainable practices. I will miss him."
- Ed Martoglio
"Mark convinced me to join Energy Star 20 years ago. Ever smiling, well prepared, and knowledgeable, Mark's efforts made a difference. Without the assistance and guidance of Mark and later his company folks, we would not have been able to stay with Energy Star...and, of course, who would want to disappoint Mark by dropping out."
- Michael Fink
"Mark was program chairman for the Builders League of South Jersey when I started there in 1986. He was a tremendous asset and volunteer for the League through the years and was the recipient of BLSJ's 2017 Joseph S. Van Osten Lifetime Achievement Award. He was a great guy and will be greatly missed."
- Rick Van Osten
"Mark taught us all so much and his passion for energy efficiency was infectious. I remember when he brought the builders to the table to engage in energy efficiency discussions with the state, a momentous day! I know his impact on energy efficiency in NJ was great. He was such a forward thinking person and a really special person. I will sorely miss him as will the industry."
