Jerry and Eileen Ford. Ph: courtesy of Ford

From Ford Models: “The staff of Ford Models mourn the passing of Mr. Jerry Ford. As partner to his wife Eileen, Jerry created and built Ford Models. He was an iconic fashion industry pioneer responsible for developing and managing the careers of the world’s most beautiful people. Jerry was a man of immense character, humor and integrity. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather and mentor and friend to us all. We share our heartfelt condolences with Eileen Ford and the Ford family.”

We here at MODELS.com also express our deepest sympathies to Eileen and her family.

    We all should take a moment and reflect on the tremendous influence and the huge impact that Jerry and Eileen Ford have made on our industry. All agencies worldwide are in existence due to the groundbreaking way that Mr. and Mrs. Ford established their agency so long ago. The class and honesty that they displayed is in short supply in our industry today. And for sure we could use some more of it. Thoughts, prayers and much respect to Eileen and her Family during this tough time.
