It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our company founder, Danny Hossley, at the age of 77. He was born on Thursday, March 05, 1942 and passed away on Tuesday, February 04, 2020.
Danny was a very dedicated Christian, family man, and Mississippi State Alumnus. Hossley Lighting Associates opened for business in 1977 as Hossley Lighting Sales, a two-person lighting agency owned by Danny and Ann Hossley. The Company was founded upon the simple premise of providing high quality and professional service to its customers while conducting its business with the utmost integrity. In 1994 the Company became what we know today as Hossley Lighting Associates. Hossley Lighting Associates was sold to the employees through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) in 1997. We take tremendous pride in the fact that we are now a 100% Employee Owned Company. Over time, Hossley Lighting Associates has grown to be a leading sales agency, representing the interests of over a hundred and forty lighting and lighting technology manufacturers. With offices throughout Texas, the Company offers a wide range of commercial lighting products all through the support of its most import asset, our employees. Danny was extremely proud of the company that bears his namesake.
Danny’s death unfortunately precedes an alumni event this Friday, February 7th, where Danny is being recognized as National Alumnus of the Year at his alma mater, Mississippi State University. https://www.msstate.edu/newsroom/article/2019/12/msu-announces-hossley-2020-national-alumnus
