CHICAGO, Ill.—November 5, 2020— Joe J. Kusta, the owner of J.S. Jans of Chicago and Baton Rouge, La., died on October 5, 2020. Kusta served as a jansan manufacturers rep for 45 years and had long-term industry relationships with manufacturers such as Fresh Products, Haviland Corp., Crown Mats & Matting, Pro-Team, Hamilton Plastics, JT Eaton, Flitz International, and U.S. Products. He also had close relationships with end-user organizations such as ServiceMaster, Grainger, United Labs, USA Bluebook, Edward Don, and Amsan. He will be missed in the industry.

“Joe was a true professional,” said Stephen Hanig, formerly with U.S. Products. “He treated his customers with respect, was always looking for ways to help solve their problems, and always loved a good laugh.” Hanig added that Kusta’s business motto was, “Early to bed, early to rise, and ADVERTISE.”

Joe J. Kusta is survived by his wife, Linda Oliver, a step-son, and three grandchildren. As his family received remembrances, Kusta’s reputation in the industry stands out. According to his wife, Linda, “When you talk to customers, manufacturers, and associates, one thing keeps being repeated: ‘Joe Kusta was a nice man.’ No better compliment can be said.”
