King of Prussia, PA–Hedda Schupak, whose impact in the jewelry industry was monumental on both a professional and personal level, died Tuesday morning after a two-year battle with lung cancer. She was 62.

Schupak spent nearly her entire career in the jewelry industry and almost all of those years as an editor for publications within the industry.

She spent 23 years at JCK, beginning as a production editor and rising through the ranks as a fashion editor until she became editor-in-chief of the publication in 2000, where she stayed until 2009. During this time, she steered the publication through many changes. In 1997, during an ownership change, much of the staff left to form a competing publication. She helped guide JCK through this period. There would be several ownership changes over the years plus the addition of new publications, a migration to digital publishing and a move from Pennsylvania to New York. Throughout this time, she was loyal to her staff and that loyalty was returned. Follow Roskin Gem News Report for More Updates
