George Kolasa Death – George Kolasa has passed away suddenly. He was confirmed dead on Tuesday, August 9, 2023. He died after a long battle with cancer. The 57-year-old fashion industry insider was diagnosed with the deadly form of brain cancer known as glioblastoma multiforme in February of 2022.
He passed away within the comfort of his own home in East Hampton, New York. The news of his passing was shared on his Instagram account, where he had documented his 18-month fight against an illness that is generally regarded to be terminal.
Who was George Kolasa?
Kolasa was the ultimate professional during his 30-year career in the business. He was swift and rigorous in his work to fine-tune marketing and public relations for a variety of companies, including Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Karl Lagerfeld, and Giorgio Armani, among others.
He always had a smile on his face, made people laugh, and was well dressed — of course, in the brand he was working for — without ever having a stray hair out of place or a wrinkle in his clothes.
As well-known as Kolasa was in the business world, the source of his actual strength was not only the manner in which he confronted his disease head-on; rather, it was his unwavering commitment to documenting his medical journey via social media and other forms of public expression.
In point of fact, since he was so forthright about his experience with the uncommon illness, Kolasa was arguably even more of a touchstone for cancer patients, cancer survivors, and the people who cared about them. In addition, he made it a priority to assist patients who were being treated for conditions other than cancer with whatever challenges they might be facing, whether those challenges were their relationships or their mental health.
George Kolasa obituary and funeral plans will be released at a later date
