We are saddened to inform you of the passing of QVC vendor Barry Ort. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones during this difficult time.
Barry will be remembered for his wit, creativity and philanthropy. Barry brought the iconic Kenneth Jay Lane brand to the QVC customer in 1991, and eventually became the on air spokesperson for the brand around the world. He was known for his commitment to creating products for QVC that generated awareness and raised funds dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer.
Barry was beloved by many at QVC, and his warm personality and great sense of humor will be missed.
