Joshua Aaron Gitlitz

January 30, 1985 — November 20, 2019

Joshua Aaron Gitlitz, 34, of Aspen, CO, passed away on November 20, 2019. Born January 30, 1985 in Denver, CO, he moved to Aspen at a young age with his family. The eldest of three, he will be remembered lovingly by his mother Louise, father David, and his sisters Alexandra and Natasha. Truly a beautiful soul, he was loved by everyone. He attended Aspen Country Day School and was a graduate of St. Marks School in Massachusetts where he was the captain of the golf and squash teams. Josh went on to graduate from Tulane University and received his MBA from Columbia University. After college he started his career in finance, trading, and wealth management. A lover of travel and adventure, he attended Semester at Sea while in college and lived in New York City, Singapore, and San Francisco. In his world, Josh gets to eat all the candy he wants (especially Sour Patch Kids), sleep until his heart is content, be warm in his surroundings, and job security is exactly 110 percent. As Josh’s bonus, we all get to be here together, remember the good times, and cherish and love him unconditionally. Josh is watching over all his loved ones. Josh is our guardian; our light. Services to honor his life will take place at Red Butte Cemetery on Cemetery Lane in Aspen at 1p.m. Friday. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made in Josh’s memory to the Josh Gitlitz Scholarship Fund at Aspen Country Day School:
