QVC Mourns the Passing of Barry Ort

Posted by QVC Team 1388086986.563

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.

Barry Ort appeared to be a very kind and caring gentleman. I am certain his gentle nature will be missed by all who knew him. He certainly had a smooth and convincing way of presenting KJL jewelry. My condolences to his family and friends.

I have enjoyed watching Barry present KJL jewelry for several years now and am so saddened to hear of his unexpected passing. I appreciated Barry's expertise with the KJL line and loved listening to his humorous stories. Barry's passion for his work was evident each time his was on air. I extend my deepest sympathy to Barry's family and friends.

I will miss Barry so very much. He was such a kind man and always funny, but honest about the KJL jewelry he was presenting. I never missed one of his shows and there will never be another Barry Ort. My sincerest sympathies to his family in this very sad time.
