In five years of writing about our industry, we have only had to bring you news of a death once before. Unfortunately, today is a sad occasion also, as we bring you news that Jason Litt, vice-president of sales, North America, at Prysm, Inc. was killed in a motorcycle accident in San Jose early on Thursday.
It appears that Litt, 39, was alone and that no other vehicle was involved in the crash.
He had been working in the AV industry for over 16 years and had been with Prysm for 12 months. We only met him once or twice at shows (Jason gave a very good presentation in Amsterdam at #ISE2012), though we cannot say that we knew him personally. However, we do know that we was extremely well liked and respected in the AV community.
Our thoughts go out to his family, friends and colleagues at Prysm. Funeral details are unknown at this time.
