Joseph Alexander Dies

On April 15, Joseph Alexander, the affable director of marketing and advertising for Mark Silverstein Imagines, died while on vacation with his family in Tokyo, Japan. He was 43.

The Indian-born Alexander received a master of fine arts degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago and later moved to Los Angeles. He worked for Silverstein’s company for a decade, the designer says.

“Joe was a very loyal guy, loyal to his friends with a fun, happy-go-lucky spirit,” he says. “The customers loved him and he had a ton of friends that went way back.”

Silverstein remembered him as a great fan of the Yankees, Indian food, pizza, beer, music (in particular Rush and Depeche Mode), and the Syracuse Orange basketball team, as well as a “great husband and father.”

He is survived by wife Heather Schwarze Alexander, daughter Maya, mother Daisy, father Alex, and brother James.

Contributions in his memory can be made to: Syracuse University Marching Band, c/o Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts, 215 Crouse College, Syracuse, NY 13244; or Pearl River HS Joseph Alexander Memorial Art Scholarship, c/o 22 Mapleshade Avenue, Pearl River, NY 10965.

    Great person, I had the opportunity to work with him at Charles Garnier and found him to be professional, hard worker and great attitude. We also rode the 438 Commuter Express Bus together downtown everyday. He had a great sense of humor and a big heart. Miss you!
