Dear Brothers, Sisters, Kith and Kin,
It is with a deep sense of sadness and regret that I must report to you the passing of our Brother Member Benjamin G. Goodman on March 14, 2021, due to sudden heart failure.  Brother Goodman graduated from Florida Atlantic University in 2014.  He began working in the jurisdiction with his father, Jeff, at NBC that year and later at The Lion King and Wicked on Broadway.  He was presently working at NBC and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert at CBS Studio 50.  He was born on March 8, 1989 and was initiated into Local One on October 28, 2018.
Ben was recently accepted for admission to the M.B.A. program at Michigan State University.  Ben and Lindsay Janisse were engaged to be married in spring of 2022.
He is survived by his father Local One Brother Jeff Goodman, his mother Cindy Shelley, his brothers Andrew Shelly, Carson Goodman, sister Natasha Goodman, his step mother Pamela Goodman and his fiancé Lindsay Janisse.
There will be a celebration of Ben’s life at Crestwood Funeral Home, 445 West 43rd Street, New York, NY on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, between the hours of 12:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Brother Ben will be missed by family and friends alike.  May his soul Rest in Peace.  The family is planning to hold another memorial service in Ben’s honor in an outdoor space which will be announced in the future.
