In a LinkedIn post, the NSCA shared the passing of AV industry icon Jeff Kindig, who lost his courageous battle with cancer.

Kindig was a truly remarkable individual who left an indelible mark on our industry and in the hearts of those fortunate enough to have worked alongside him.

NSCA says, “We’re proud that, during his remarkable career in the integration industry, he served as NSCA’s director of workforce development. He was also instrumental in helping the NSCA Education Foundation launch its Ignite Workforce Development Program.

Others recall his time at Harman International, as director of global marketing and market strategy, where he was instrumental in masterminding intricate trade show booths and immersive experience centers.

Shaun Robinson, VP of product at Xilica and a close friend of Kindig, shared on LinkedIn, “Jeff’s design prowess, meticulous attention to detail, and tireless work ethic transformed every project into a work of art. Whether braving the frigid Amsterdam nights or tackling the toughest tasks with sleeves rolled up, Jeff led by example. He was the Steve Jobs of creative marketing.”

Robinson continued, “[Jeff’s] memory will forever be cherished, and the countless hours we spent together hold a special place in our hearts. May you rest in peace, dear friend, and may you find solace in a heavenly bowl of cherries jubilee with a side of vanilla ice cream — just as you would have enjoyed it, before dinner, of course.”

His guiding principle, to always “eat dessert first,” reflected his zest for life and the joy he brought into every room. His presence was a delight, enriching our professional experiences and personal journeys with wisdom, kindness and an infectious enthusiasm.

Kindig was a great man in every sense — an extremely passionate, creative and kind man who inspired many. His absence will be deeply felt by all who knew him. His legacy will continue to inspire and guide us all.
