Madison House partner of 23 years and industry veteran, Jesse Aratow, unexpectedly passed away on October 29, 2021. Nadia Prescher, Madison House Co-Founder, said “Anyone who knew Jesse knew the spirit he brought to any personal or professional event. He was always maintaining his values while working in this unique industry, which is not an easy feat. His overwhelming commitment to his family, best friends and righteousness was respected and admired by many.”

Jesse was known and will be remembered for his larger-than-life presence, his authenticity, his impeccable taste, his infectious smile, and most of all, his profound integrity both in his life and in his work.

Jesse is survived by his adoring wife, Liza, his beloved daughters Kalea and Lily, his mother Susanna, and his younger sister Gabriella. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking donations be given in Jesse’s name to Conscious Alliance, Sweet Relief, or Backline.

Everyone at Madison House extends our endless thanks for the overwhelming amount of support, messages, comments, and compassion for a truly incredible man.


Physical cards for the family may be sent to:

Family of Jesse Aratow 1401 Walnut Street #500 Boulder, CO 80302
