A Community Leader

Joe was awarded the Susan St. James award for leadership from Special Olympics Connecticut, and is a member of the Special Olympics Hall of Fame.

Joe was also awarded the 2018-2019 Frederic & Lucy Kellogg Award from the United Way of Greater Waterbury, honoring his enduring, philanthropic commitment to United Way and the Greater Waterbury Community.

A lifelong New York Mets fan, Joe was at the infamous "Bill Buckner game" of the 1986 World Series versus the Red Sox – Section 14, Row O, Seat 17.

Because there seems to be no more than six degrees between Joe and any other person, he has been dubbed by WORXers "The Kevin Bacon of Connecticut."

A self-admitted food and wine addict, Joe often cooks up specialty dishes on Friday for both agency team members and client partners to enjoy.
