It is with heavy hearts that Barton mourns the recent passing of our friend and colleague, Jason A. Cohen (44), on Friday, July 19, 2019.
Jason attended Syracuse University before earning his J.D. from New York Law School, cum laude. After an impressive career at Reed Smith LLP, Jason joined Barton in 2017 where his practice focused primarily on complex commercial litigation.
One would be hard-pressed to find someone with a more vibrant smile than Jason. With an unparalleled zest for life, Jason filled every moment with his tenacious compassion and impeccable work ethic. His charisma and integrity made him a magnetic presence and a compelling attorney. Friends of Jason know that he was as sharp with his wit and his dress as he was in the courtroom.
More than just a talented colleague, he was also a gracious and loyal friend. He was a devoted husband to his wife, Lisa, and a loving father to his two incredible daughters, Madison (10) and Riley (7). He was a connoisseur of fine foods, fine clothes, and fine wine. He was all of these things and more.
Despite the weight of this loss, we are truly grateful for the wonderful days we were privileged to spend with Jason, and we will continue to celebrate the many ways in which he made Barton—and the world—a better place.
