So sorry to hear of Mark's passing. I have worked with him for many years, across my time at Conde Nast and at Meredith. He was such a kind and gentle soul, steadfast in pursuing business interests, an excellent listener, and a great negotiator. We will miss him, too!

I haven't seen Mark in years but I am deeply saddened to hear the news of his passing. Mark used to come to visit the London office and my fondest memory of him was his sense of humour, he could be so serious but you knew when he was joking because he always had a little smirk under his moustache.

Being such a huge character I know he will be sadly missed by all his work colleagues and friends.

My thoughts are with his family at this sad time.

I am so sorry for you loss and am struggling to give you words to express how much I respected Mark.
We worked together at Hearst many years ago...although never directly. I took an instant liking to Mark, with his sense of humor and big personality. He and I would often meet for lunch and talk about family and business. I knew he always had my back.
Later in my career, after I had long left Hearst, we stayed in touch with a quasi annual lunch or phone call. I always preferred the lunches...I would drive up to Pearl River and meet him at his favorite spot.
I was thinking if him just a week ago...time to reach out. I regret not making that call. I am so sorry for your loss...know that he was loved by many. I will miss him.
My sincerest condolences.
- Mark Magnani

Denise and family, sorry to hear about Mark. What a great guy, good times playing hoops at the NYAC , working at Hearst. talking about our families and his days at Active. I spoke with him after New Years and didn't know he was sick he never told me. I know he was a man of faith and did a lot of good in his short time on this earth. My condolences.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Mark over the last five years at Active. He was always so kind and giving with his time, no matter who he was working with. I always enjoyed our conversations about our shared frustrations with the Knicks, his sneaker collection, or just stories from his life. Most importantly though, I will remember Mark as a compassionate man who made a profound impact on the people he crossed paths with. May he is rest in paradise.

I've known Mark during my four years at Active - we worked together on an account a few years ago and I remember us driving to meet with the client. He told me about his love for basketball and his sneaker collection. I hadn't seen him for awhile since I switched offices but he had just reached out a few days ago out of the blue because of a story written about me in the paper. It was so nice to hear from him and I knew although we didn't see each other as much, he cared and was a great colleague and friend. He will be missed dearly.

I didn't have the fortune of working with Mark as long as my other colleagues on here, but in just two and half years, he made a huge impression. As a new kid fresh out of college, Mark wasted no time taking me under his wing, as he did for so many others, and showing me the ropes of our workplace. He was always more than willing to lend a helping hand to those who needed.

From there, we became more than just co workers. We were friends. We would talk about basketball, particularly our frustration with the Knicks, and sneakers. I was even lucky enough to be given a pair from his illustrious collection after he found out my shoe size. Perfect condition of course. Another example of his kindness.

We never got to play a basketball game like we had talked about, but I already know he would've crushed me. If he was half as tough, smart, talented, and dedicated on the court as he was in the office, I wouldn't have stood a chance.

RIP, my friend. My condolences to all his family and friends, especially Denise, Jenna, and Adam. You meant the world to him. That was clear to everyone that worked with him.

I worked with Mark for over five years. Mark was always there for me at the office when I needed information about his craft that he knew so well. He was always helpful, kind, funny and went out of his way to lend a hand.

This is a terrible loss and my heart goes out to his family.

Denise and family,
I am really sorry about your great loss. Condolences also to Michelle and family. Though I haven’t seen Mark in many years, he will always be remembered as a student who made teaching so rewarding.
May the beautiful memories of him be as a blessing to you always.

Totally shocked when I heard about Mark's passing. While drifting apart after growing up together I was happy to get reacquainted at the "Y" reunion though it was through you, as Mark didn't attend. I'm glad that we met for lunch although that was quite a number of years ago. I am sorry now that we didn't try to get together again.

Condolences to you, your children and Michelle and her family and may all the good memories rise to the top.
Regards, Cheryl (and Mario)
