Joe taught me how to knot a bow tie–that was as enjoyable a tutorial as I ever had

Joe was an inspiration. Supportive, witty, a wise and entertaining conversationalist, a plain-spoken but visionary leader–we will all miss him, but his presence lives on in the institution he helped to create.

I must add that Joe taught me how to knot a bow tie–that was as enjoyable a tutorial as I ever had.
