In Memoriam: Mark Einstein

Mark Einstein passed away unexpectedly this past New Year’s Eve.  He was looking forward to celebrating his 70th birthday this February. For many years, Mark was the Director of Tax and Real Estate Services at CohnReznick.  He guided developers, investors, and syndicators in structuring tax-advantaged real estate transactions with a particular focus on affordable housing and historic rehabilitation. After his retirement from CohnReznick, he established his own company to continue that work.

Mark was a long-time active member of NH&RA and its Board of Directors and his input and engagement will be missed. However, his most recent role was one of which he was most proud. Mark was the Chairman of the David Reznick Foundation established by David’s family in memory of a man who was a leader in the industry and greatly beloved. The family asked Mark to assume this role to honor David’s values by supporting those who are less fortunate through college tuition grants, the preservation of affordable housing and community revitalization.

Mark was also known for his passion for boating.  He and his wife, Dee, enjoyed taking their boat up and down the East Coast and over to the Bahamas often with their children Justin Einstein, Emily Dunenfeld and Christopher Dunenfeld. Last year, Mark and Dee traveled around the world by cruise ship and visited destinations on all continents.  Survivors also include his sister and brother-in-law, Stephany and Alan Steinberg, his brother and sister-in-law, Larry and Tricia Einstein, and several nieces and nephews.

A funeral service was held January 3 at Temple Isaiah in Fulton, MD 20759. In lieu of flowers, it is requested that contributions be made to the David Reznick Foundation at https://www.reznickfoundation.org/home.html.

If you have any photos that show Mark enjoying his life, then please send them to his daughter at emilydunenfeld2014@gmail.com so she may include them in the album she is creating.
