IHA’s Jennifer Lamberg Passes Away

With deep sadness, the International Housewares Association announces the passing of Jennifer Lamberg on Sunday, Sept. 29 after a brief illness.

Lamberg was executive assistant to IHA President & CEO Phil Brandl and Judy Colitz, manager, special events & executive services. She joined IHA in 2001.

Lamberg touched many lives in the industry through her responsibilities for IHA’s Chief Officers Reaching Excellence (CORE) share groups and the Chief Housewares Executive SuperSession (CHESS), as well as the International Home + Housewares Show and Housewares Charity Foundation.

“IHA has lost a treasured member of the family. Jennifer fought a courageous battle with breast cancer beginning in late 2012 and we rejoiced with her when she got a cancer-free diagnosis last spring,” Brandl said. “We will especially miss her strong spirit and witty personality. She was an inspiration to all of us.”

Lamberg is survived by her husband Bob and son Brady.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation, PO Box 204, Norwood, NJ 07648, www.tnbcfoundation.org, or The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in care of Judy Colitz, IHA, 6400 Shafer Ct, Ste. 650, Rosemont, IL 60018.
