NYC Real Estate Legend Jack Rudin Has Passed Away At Age 92


A member of one of NYC’s oldest real estate dynasties has passed.

On Dec. 4, Rudin Management Co chairman Jack Rudin died at his home at age 92.

As Rudin Management president, Jack oversaw the design and construction of 345 Park Ave, 1 Battery Park Place, 3 Times Square, 215 East 68th St and 211 East 70th St. During that time, Rudin Management expanded to more than 800 employees.

In addition to his presence in the real estate industry, Jack was a WWII veteran, serving as a staff sergeant in the US Army under Gen. George Patton, liberating Nazi concentration camps and receiving a Bronze Star.

He’s survived by his second wife, Susan; son, Eric; daughters, Madeleine and Katherine; grandchildren, Grant Johnson, Samuel and Nicholas; stepdaughters, Inda and Eve Schaenen; and nephew and Rudin Management CEO William Rudin, among others.

Funeral services will be held at 11am tomorrow at the Central Synagogue on 55th Street and Lexington Avenue

An avid supporter of NYC trade unions and contributor to NYC’s healthcare, education, the arts and social services, the Rudin family will be accepting contributions to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the American Museum of Natural History and Jazz at Lincoln Center instead of flowers.
