It is with sad news the sudden passing of Sysco Oxnard's recently retired President, Jerry Barash.

Mr. Jerry L. Barash was the President and Chief Executive Officer of Sysco Food Services of Ventura, Inc. from January 2006-2017.
He was previously a President and Chief Executive Officer at Sysco Food Services Of St. Louis, Llc. joined SYSCO's corporate office in 1982. In 1983 he was named executive vice president of the company's Los Angeles subsidiary and he advanced to president later that same year. In 1988, following SYSCO's purchase of the CFS Continental foodservice
business, he was named vice president of program sales at the newly combined Los Angeles operation. He relocated to SYSCO's broadline subsidiary in Houston in 1994 to serve as vice president of program sales and in 1998 he was named to his current position. Mr. Barash was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. He is a 1973 graduate of the University of Arizona, where he earned a bachelor of science degree in marketing. He and his wife, Karen, have two adult sons and a daughter. 

Please take a moment of silence out of your crying and complaining to say a prayer for Jerry's family during their time of grief especially during the Holiday season and give thanks you have a job!
Rest in peace Jerry.
Signed,

Thats to bad, I worked with Mr. Barash at Sysco Houston in the 90's.  I sent him an email congratulating him on his retirement, he sent back a nice reply.

My sincere sympathy to Jerry's family at this time of mourning.
I started my Foodservice career working for Jerry's father Harold at Isis Foods in K.C. in 1977.
I met Jerry there and worked with him. He was a good man.

Isis Foods? That name wouldn't be popular today, is the Barash family Indian Sikhs? Muslim Sheites?

Isis Food Co. Was started in the thirties by Harold's father and uncle behind the Isis Movie Theater in downtown Kansas City MO. They started primarily in rhe Produce Business.
Before they closed the business in the late 70's or very early in the 80's they were doing close to $70M and were full Broadline Distribution including tabletop. Their closest competitor was Lady Baltimore Foods which was a big Nugget house.

I worked for Jerry when he first came to St. Louis. He hired a new VP of Sales named Bob Green, a drunk who immediately came after me and tried to demote me from a DSM to an MA, and Jerry was letting him do it. RIP Jerry, but since those days I've been a VP of Sales for the past 20 years.
