It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

There is no better publication that I am aware of that is so accurate and on top of any news and developments in our industry. I personally recommend it to many people that want to know and understand more about our industry. For the most part, shop-eat-surf.com gets the stories first. As a matter of fact, I require all the executives in our company to read it.

Sheriff confirms Bevacqua death

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department has confirmed that LRG Co-Founder Jonas Bevacqua has died.

 

Jonas was found dead in his home in Laguna Beach, according to a Sheriff's spokesman.

 

There was no outward signs of trauma or obvious cause of death, said Sheriff’s spokesman John MacDonald.

 

An autopsy will be performed Wednesday morning.

 

There has been some discrepancy about when Jonas was found. Jim Amormino of the Sheriff's Department told me Wednesday that Jonas was found at 8 p.m. Monday night.

 

LRG has posted this statement on its Facebook page:

 

"To our extended LRG family:

 

Yesterday, we lost an icon. Jonas Bevacqua was a true pioneer in the fashion industry. As co-founder of LRG, Jonas was a creative visionary, loved by those around him. Jonas was a friend, partner, father, mentor and a very caring person who inspired so many of us who were fortunate enough to be around him.

 

Jonas is survived by his dedicated family, including his fiancé, son, seven siblings and his mother and father, whom he loved and respected above all. We ask that everyone keep his family in their hearts and prayers and respect their privacy in this time of incredible grief.

 

Jonas lives on in every member of his LRG Family. Jonas’ amazing love for the brotherhood of the LRG Family is shared by all. Through our love and respect for Jonas and each other, we will become closer, stronger, and we will persevere in his honor. Jonas was a mentor to an astonishing group of creative individuals at LRG who will carry his vision for many years to come.

 

Jonas was a star who burned brightly in the sky and who is gone far too soon. There is a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. He will always be loved and missed by his friends, family, and all those he inspired. He is in a better place and will be watching over us always.

 

Rest In Peace Brother – you will be missed greatly, but never forgotten.

 

With love and respect,

 

The Entire LRG Family
