DDC Treasurer Jacob Zupnick Dies

Jacob Zupnick, treasurer of the Diamond Dealers Club since 2011, died June 30 at age 67. The cause was cancer.

“He was one of our long-standing members,” says president Reuven Kaufman. “He was very dedicated to the industry. His door was always open. He was respected throughout the world and will be sorely missed.”

In a 1997 article, Zupnick said that despite all the industry’s challenges, he believed in its future. 

“There’s still room for people who want to work hard and who have a good head for business,” Zupnick said. “If you have a good name, you have the loyalty of your customers. They come back to me because they know I do my best for them.”

In addition to his work in the DDC, Zupnick dedicated his time to Hatzolah, the ambulance service, and numerous other charities.
