Lee Dushoff passed away this past Saturday in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where is he lived. He was born in 1938 and was 80 years old when he succumbed to his battle with cancer. Lee was one of the most beloved personalities in the industry and well-known for the major consulting contracts he held through his firm, Hotel Partners. In 1990, Dushoff was a consultant and worked side-by-side with Henry Silverman during the inception of HFS, which became Cendant and now, Wyndham Worldwide. Dushoff also held major consulting contracts with various individuals such as Mike Levin, Steve Belmonte, and most recently, for several years consulted to Raj Trivedi at LaQuinta. Steve Belmonte comments, “Lee Dushoff was the single most unique individual I have ever met in this industry. He was a brother, a father, a mentor and most importantly, my very best friend for decades. Lee was completely void of all ego. He woke up every day with the intent of helping someone; guiding someone on the right path. He was committed to fair business dealing and lead many of today’s executives down a better path to success. He was also committed to his wife, Elaine, and had one of the most successful marriages I have ever seen. I don’t know what else to say except he was beautiful individual and he will be missed in so very many ways.”
Funeral services will be held Tuesday, July 31th, 1 P.M. at Joseph Levine and Sons Memorial Chapel, 4737 Street Road, Trevose, PA 19053.
