Jo Sheridan, who retired in 2009 after serving as the Career Development and Alumni Relations office coordinator for over 13 years, recently passed away. Jo was the “heart and heartbeat” of our office as well as a beloved staff member, colleague, and friend. For those of you who knew Jo from her time here at Maxwell, I know her family would be deeply touched to hear from you.
As you may know, Jo loved Maxwell and she was truly at the center of the Maxwell network. A note from Jo’s son, Scott, sums it up, “Please let the Maxwell community know how much she loved them all and even over the past couple of weeks she had her thoughts on some of the emails she received from one of Maxwell’s listservs. While retiring was the right call for her I do believe she missed it every day…”
