Jon Joseph Levkoff, Bill Levkoff, Inc., the enigmatic, energetic, charismatic, and visionary bridal industry titan passed March 1, at the age of 81.

Jon’s vision, business acumen and stewardship of Bill Levkoff, Inc., grew a small family business in the early 1970’s into the dominant bridesmaid dress manufacturer throughout the decades of 1980-1990s benefiting generations of bridal boutique owners and businesses, and the tens of thousands of brides and bridesmaids they served.

Friends and peers alike have expressed their sadness at his passing, often commenting on his generous spirit and the positive impact he had on their lives.

At VOWS Magazine, we will always remember and be grateful to Jon for his early support and friendship at a critical moment at which VOWS was in its fledgling stage.

Jon, whose love for and of family was at the core of his character, is survived by Arlene Levkoff, his children Brett (Jennifer) Levkoff, Jodi (Andrew) Buchbinder and his six grandchildren.
