POSLUNS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2006-04-08 published
'An incredibly lovely person'
To her grieving family, Lisa POSLUNS was an inspiration
Murder cut short life of joy and energy, they tell Peter SMALL
By Peter SMALL, Staff Reporter, Page B1
On a heartbreakingly brilliant day in a cemetery north of Toronto, Helen POSLUNS points to a young sugar maple arching above her sister's headstone, its buds impatient to sprout.
The family planted it in her memory two years ago.
Every March 30, Lisa POSLUNS' birthday, family and Friends decorate it with coloured balloons.
"She loved cheerful things," her sister recalls, their mother, Margie, looking on from a bench placed in Lisa's honour.
"She was full of life and energy. She was very much a glass-is-half-full sort of person."
The 38-year-old commercial real estate broker's crumpled body was found November 3, 2002, in the ground-floor equipment room of the Yorkville building where she rented an office.
A jury found 36-year-old Nelson DEJESUS guilty yesterday of first-degree murder in her sexual assault and stabbing.
At the cemetery, Helen POSLUNS clears snow from the base of her sister's headstone to reveal a ceramic flowerpot fashioned by one of Lisa's nieces, and some small pumpkins.
"She loved pumpkins," Helen recalls. "She loved Halloween."
"She was the kind of person you would never want to let go of. Never," Margie POSLUNS says.
Pardes Shalom Cemetery is the last place Helen saw her sister, just 13 days before she was murdered.
It was during the unveiling of the headstone for Helen's first and only child, Zachary, who died just one day old on March 21, 2002, of a chromosomal disorder.
"She stood there with me and my husband, holding our arms," Helen says. Afterward they walked down the gentle slope from Zachary's grave to the cemetery road, Lisa's hair blowing in the wind, Helen recalls.
Now her headstone stands beside his.
"You are our inspiration and our guiding light," its inscription reads, in part. "We will never let go of you." Also inscribed is a long-stemmed broken rose -- the family's redefinition of a Jewish symbol for a child who dies before her time.
"Lisa was really an incredibly lovely person," Helen says.
"She was like a rose, a beautiful delicate rose, and we felt like she was snapped in half. We felt like we were snapped in half."
Lisa-Ann Lauren POSLUNS was born in Toronto in 1964 to Margie and lawyer Avrum POSLUNS, a few years after the births of Helen and their brother, Steve.
She spent most of her first two years in the Hospital for Sick Children, battling gastrointestinal problems.
"For someone who struggled and fought even at that stage of her life -- she faced challenges, and met them all -- to have her life taken …" Helen says.
She attended Associated Hebrew Day School of Toronto, then York Mills Collegiate.
A good all-around student, she excelled at math and loved the arts. She took piano lessons and ballet, and tried her hand at modelling.
Two years after her father died of cancer, the family moved to the St. Clair Ave. and Avenue Rd. area and she settled into Grade 13 at Forest Hill Collegiate.
She was a cheerleader and played drums in a school band, practising with her bandmates in the POSLUNS home. "Those were good days when you heard banging and music," Margie says.
Even as an adult, Lisa kept a set of drums in her apartment.
She loved the musical Annie, John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, and was a lifelong member of the Donny Osmond fan club. He called the family after she died.
In the Talmud it says that to save a life is to save the world. By the same token, to take a life is to take the world -- a person's death affects so many people, Helen says.
Alicia ROSS, another woman killed in her prime, is buried metres from Lisa.
"When we bring flowers to Lisa, we leave a flower there for Alicia," Helen says. "I can't believe that these people aren't here any more."
Lisa earned a bachelor's degree in business management from Ryerson, graduating in 1988 on the dean's list.
She started in photocopier sales, then moved into real estate, first as an agent and then as a commercial broker.
In her scant spare time, she did charity work, particularly for children.
"She had a real heart for people who didn't have enough in life for the basic necessities," Helen says. "She was very selfless."
At work and at home, she was known as immaculate, super-organized and thoughtful. She could find the perfect gift for anybody, always wrapping it with care and adding her trademark extra touch: candy or chocolate coins.
"Lisa had her running shoes on all the time," her mother recalls. "She didn't walk, she ran. She made everything fun for me."
And she always found time for her two nieces and nephew, who called her Auntie Lis.
One of Helen's strongest images of her sister is what it was like to walk into their mom's house with Lisa already there helping in the kitchen.
She would come out chewing on a piece of celery, "and she would give you a very, very tight hug. She would give you bear hugs."
In 2000, she left her job as vice-president of a real estate company to found her own, Posluns Realty Inc. The modest office suite she leased on the fifth floor of 94 Cumberland Street, near Bay and Bloor Sts., was just a five-minute walk from her apartment.
She travelled across North America scouting malls and commercial buildings for clients, often large chains including Dairy Queen and Tim Hortons.
Jane COONEY, founder of Books for Business, hired Lisa to help her renew her lease. Soon they were Friends.
"She was very generous and would take the time I needed," COONEY recalls. "She just always gave more than she got."
Early media reports that styled Lisa as a rich, sex-in-the-city stereotype baffled the family. She was just an average working woman trying to turn her dreams into reality, Helen says.
The nine-storey building where she hung her shingle had low rents, she says. "That's why we laughed when they said it was her 'posh Yorkville office.'"
Nor are the POSLUNS the prominent family portrayed by some, Helen says. Their branch is only distantly connected to the POSLUNS involved with the Dylex clothing empire.
After Lisa died, some media coverage seemed to imply she deserved what she got, Helen says. "They went out of their way to say she was single and had no children. It was very sexist."
Some reports also focused on lawsuits she had launched against former clients, including Starbucks and Mark's Work Wearhouse, over alleged breach of contract.
Helen, a lawyer who carried on the lawsuits in Lisa's honour, won't discuss them in detail. But she called her sister a tough negotiator with strong ethics, always out to get the best deal for her clients.
"The men didn't like her because she worked harder than them," Margie says. "She was one little person in one little company."
Lots of women work hard and put in long hours, Helen says. They don't expect a killer to strike as they leave for the night.
Lisa's last day was mundane, albeit in a nice part of town.
She got her hair done at Holt Renfrew, the upscale Bloor St. W. retailer where she also bought clothes. She was acutely aware that she was the public face of her firm, virtually a one-woman operation, and had to meet company presidents looking right, Helen says.
That night, she had dinner alone at a small Bay St. eatery.
She returned to her office around 7 p.m. to prepare legal documents for the lawsuit against Mark's. "She was so upset and nervous about the case," Helen says.
Her mother called briefly. Lisa said she was leaving soon and promised to call her mom when she got home. "I hung up the phone about 8 o'clock," Margie says. "I said, 'I love you.' And she said, 'I love you,' and that was the last I heard of her voice."
This past March 30 marked the fourth of Lisa's birthdays the family has commemorated since her death.
"We try to make it through the day and stay alive," Helen says.
But the manner of Lisa's death keeps her family and Friends from finding any peace of mind.
A physically shy, modest woman, she was brutally sexually assaulted, stabbed and left with her throat slit in a dirty equipment room.
"We know what absolute hell she went through and there will never be any peace for us around her death. In this kind of death, we can't get over what happened to her and what she had to suffer through all by herself, and in such pain. She must have been beyond petrified of all she had to face, and all alone."
It's hard to sit at the family dinner table knowing she won't be there, Helen says.
To this day, they set a wine glass on the table filled with Coke and ice, Lisa's usual Friday-night drink.
For the POSLUNS family, "she is still alive and will always be alive in some way," Helen says.
"We can't accept that she's not here.
"No matter what we do, there is always sadness," her mother says.
A woman at a bereavement group said it best, Helen recalls: When someone so significant to you dies, you can never have the same life because a part of yourself has died.
"It's like being a fish on land. That's the closest anyone has put it to me."
