We have some very unfortunate news to share. A member of our Labor and Employment Law family, Jeff Fannell, has lost his 22-year-old son, Joseph. As many of you know first-hand, Jeff is a superb professor and a spectacular alumnus. He is a double alum of St. John’s (CPS ’92, LAW ’96), a long-time adjunct professor, and the inaugural Deputy Director for St. John’s Sports Law L.L.M. Program. The wake and funeral will be in New Jersey on Friday. I am sure the Fannell family would greatly appreciate the support from the St. John’s community. Details are attached.
