Mark Samitt

Mark D. Samitt, 52, of Woodcliff Lake, died May 6.

He graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, earned a master’s from the University of Rhode Island, and another from the Harvard Business School. He was a management consultant with Deloitte and Touche, an executive at Movado Group, COO and president of Steuben Glass, and then created a consulting firm, RD Management Group.

While battling melanoma, he created “Mark the SPOT!,” a partnership with the Melanoma Research Foundation aimed at creating awareness among hair stylists about spotting unusual moles or lesions during the routine styling process.

He is survived by his wife Gayle; daughters, Rachel and Danielle; parents Bruce and Florence Samitt; siblings, Craig (Steven Hart), and Alison Samitt (Anthony Calcagni); and in-laws, Robert and Barbara Allen.

Donations can be sent to the Melanoma Research Foundation. Arrangements were by Robert Schoem’s Menorah Chapel, Paramus.
