Jewelry Television The Sisk Gemology Reference, 3 Volume, Professional Edition #JTV #GemBook

JTV introduces The Sisk Gemology Reference, Professional Edition at the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show.

Jerry Sisk was a Gemologist, as well as the co-Founder and Executive Vice President at JTV.  With the Tucson Gem Shows just around the corner, and the info for this post sitting in my Inbox, I found myself procrastinating getting this info up.  I didn't know Jerry Sisk well but we knew each other to say hi as we passed each other walking across the street to get from the Tucson Convention Center to the GJX Show.  The few times we sat down to talk, usually about my Tucson Gem Show - Live!  blog.  I couldn't help but notice the passion Jerry had for the Industry and Oh Boy did the Industry love him!  I used to get a giggle watching this big guy dressed in a black suit with a dozen or more guys vying for his attention, all talking at the same time.

About the Author, Jerry Sisk:

It takes a village....In 1993, Sisk co-founded what would become Jewelry Television together with two partners and longtime friends, Bob Hall and Bill Kouns. The new home shopping channel was broadcast from a small studio in Greeneville, Tennessee, utilizing just one television camera.  From its humble start, Jewelry Television, which calls itself the largest retailer of loose gemstones in the United States, employed more than 1,200 people at the time of Sisk's unexpected death.

These are the people, his family, who took on the Herculean task of making Jerry's dream come true...they published his book.
