New York Daily NewsMarch 28, 2014
It was a night of honor for late Daily News real estate writer Jason Sheftell.

Sheftell, who died last year at age 46, was remembered Thursday at a gala for the Bailey House.

“Jason was someone who celebrated New York and who loved life — and we miss him,” said Mickey Conlon, star of HGTV’s hit “Selling New York” and host of the fund-raiser.

Sheftell’s mother, Karen, accepted the 2014 Real Estate Award in his honor. “He had enthusiasm, he had heart,” she said.

A lifelong New Yorker, Sheftell had covered the charity, which helps homeless people with AIDS, for The News and was considering joining its board before his death, said chief development officer Eric Douglas.
