On January 8, 2017, trustee and alumni parent, Joseph D. Drusano, passed away unexpectedly. Joe is the husband of Joan, father of Michael '85 and his wife Marybeth and Christian '88 and his wife Amy '88, and grandfather of 5 grandchildren. Joe was also a member of the John Carroll Board of Trustees Executive Committee, serving as Treasurer.
"Joe was one of the most highly respected trustees we have had during my years at John Carroll," reflected President and Interim Principal Richard J. O'Hara. "He was wise, fair, kind, humble, and had the common touch and a likable sense of humor. I know how much he loved his family, and he was very proud of his affiliation with John Carroll. He served the school behind the scenes well above and beyond the call of duty in financial matters and in terms of his quiet, steady leadership as a member of the Board’s Executive Committee. I can’t begin to express how much Joe will be missed as a colleague and more so as someone who had become a mentor and friend."
Please join the John Carroll community in praying for the repose of the soul of Joe Drusano and for the consolation of his family.
