About the Joseph M. Pizzurro Memorial Foundation
Who was Joseph M. Pizzurro?
-A letter from Kelly Pizzurro, President
Joseph or Joe/Joey as I called him was many things but most importantly he was my love, my husband, best friend, greatest supporter and father of my daughter. Joe was a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew and a friend to many. With an easy going personality, he was quick to smile or laugh. He was a graphic designer, an artist and a musician. Joe was a music and sports fan, especially loyal to the New York Mets. And the list goes on and on. Joey was a great person who will truly be missed by myself, our family and our friends.
When Joey passed away suddenly, I was amazed by the amount of love, kind words and support that others, sometimes complete strangers, provided. As time passes I will never forget those who helped my daughter and I. When Jacqui approached my family and I about starting a Memorial Scholarship at their High School we were quick to say yes. It’s a great way to keep Joe’s legacy alive. I am humbled to pay it forward and to help others in Joe’s honor.
