Marc Krantz, a managing partner at downtown law firm Kohrman Jackson & Krantz and the board chairman of the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority, died this weekend on family ski trip in Jackson Hole, Wyo. He was 54.

Krantz was active in the Jewish community and an influential force in bringing the Republican National Convention to Cleveland.

The Cleveland Jewish News has a full, heartfelt obituary, which demonstrates Krantz' many spheres of impact.  (Marc's father Byron was a founding partner at Kohrman Jackson & Krantz).

Mayor Frank Jackson released a statement this morning on Krantz' tragic death which acknowledged his role in representing the City of Cleveland in the sale and development of the Cleveland Convention Center.

"He will be missed by the community and by me personally," Jackson said. 

Krantz lived in Pepper Pike with his wife and three children.
