Remembering Laura Ziskin

Aug 04, 2011 Published under Introspection

I just learned today that Laura Ziskin passed away a few weeks ago. I was really saddened to learn that her fight with cancer came to an end this way.  Laura was among the warmest and most impressive people I have ever met.  She was always there for the OneVoice Movement, she was always there as a professional, she was always there as a truly warm human being.  On behalf of the OneVoice Movement, we will be planting a tree in her honor in Israel, and we will commemorate her during an official delegation of OneVoice leaders to the Mideast on the last week of October.

Here are a couple of links to obituaries – in The New York Times, in the Guardian, and in the LA Times – that share some of Laura’s professional accomplishments as producer of all the Spider-man movies and other blockbusters like Pretty Woman and the Oscar contender As Good as It Gets. 

But no words can in any way appropriately express the humanity and elegance that characterized everything Laura did.
