It is with profound sadness and loss that we share the news that our Founder and Chairman, John Stewart, has passed away after a two-year battle with cancer.  John died at home on September 5th, surrounded by loving family and living large until the very end.  A true Renaissance man, John filled every room he entered with love, laughter and his unfailingly kind and compassionate presence.

John’s legacy lives on, both through the eponymous Company he founded 42 years ago and the thousands of high-quality affordable housing units he helped produce during a life very well lived (John K. Stewart – Bio).  It also lives on through our memories of him, and we have created a page where we can all share our memories of John (John K. Stewart Memory Page) – please feel free to visit and share your photos, memories and stories!

Information regarding additional ways to celebrate John’s life and legacy will follow, but for now… hug your loved ones a little closer, take care of yourself and others during these challenging times, and keep on keeping on – just as John would have wanted us all to.

With great sadness and much love to John’s personal and professional families –

Jack Gardner – President & CEO
