Jack Aronson, a big-hearted and business-minded man, died Tuesday at the age of 68.
Aronson and his wife, Annette Aronson, grow fresh cabbage. In the 1990s, after Ferdell’s work, Jack and Annette Aronson started the company at Woodward, about eight miles from Bar-Beck Club. A.D. In 2015, they sold the salad, hummus and tortilla chip business to Campbell Soap Company for $ 231 million.
Aronson, a native of Detroit, was known for his generosity and friendship, he said.
“If his heart began with the restaurant at Woodward, he would continue to work in Ferndale as he grew vegetables to national production, to the national chain. Another healthy food business began in 2019. Fairdale Mayor Melanie Pianna said in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
At the beginning of the epidemic, he called me to donate 1,000 meals to the elderly and low-income families affected by the crisis. Supports children’s literacy, supports the men’s and women’s clubs, and has always received sponsorship dollars for events for all nonprofits at Fairdale. And the surrounding cities. Jack was a generous giver. He longs for it. His inheritance will forever have an effect on Firdaus.
Cancer, who has been diagnosed with cancer, will be remembered on social media this week, working closely with community groups, charities, and the world of food that they consider a friend and mentor.
An article from Gilda’s Metro Detroit Club described Aaronson as a “friend, supporter and cancer fighter.”
“Jack struggled to survive. As doctors and researchers have learned from Jack, the search for a complete and global cure will continue. The courageous way is to help those who suffer from this incurable disease. Jack is intelligent, generous and everyone who knows him is better for him. Jack has built a mountain of goodness that will last forever. We express our love and deepest condolences to Annette and Aaronson’s family.
“The Detroit food industry, the charitable community and the world have yet to lose a hero,” said Hazel Park James F. James Rigato, a partner at Abel Gray Restaurant. Jack did not know that he was just an acquaintance. He will be the partner / mentor / father / ambassador you will find immediately.
Hazel, Ravins, and Downtown Emil Herold, another local chef and caterer in Birmingham, said on Facebook:
Aronson sold fresh cabbage to Campbell and did not rest. A.D. In 2018, Jack and Annett founded the Great Lakes High Pressure Food Innovation Center in Taylor. One of their goals was to help other small, local food companies, such as Drought Detroit, which had to export their load outside the state.
A post on Drought’s Instagram page said goodbye to “our best friend, mentor and best in business.” “Jack’s loyalty and love for his family and staff were unmatched. He was the true meaning of counsel.
