Joe and I worked together at Centric Consulting. I was so fortunate as to be part of a six week project he led last fall. I learned so much from Joe - how to be courageous and professional amid chaos, how to coordinate and pull a team together under fire, and above all how to be a good person and friend to others. I found Joe to be curious, inquisitive, and focused on delivering excellence. But he was also a supportive colleague and never took work, or himself, too seriously. Bridget, I am so sorry for your loss. Please know all of us at Centric loved working with Joe and are very saddened by his passing. Our heartfelt condolences.

I am so sorry to hear about Joe. Joe B as he was mostly referred to as in the KPMG Chicago office always had a great smile and always had a great story to tell. I hope God gives strength to the family.

I am sadden to hear about Joe's passing. I worked closely with Joe for many years at KPMG, his smile always had a way turning me away from a bad day to a great day - just via his smile. I truly missed him when he left KPMG. All my thoughts are with his wife, his family and close friends at the moment. He will be missed, but has left a piece of advice that I still use. You can always smile.
