In Memoriam

The Academy family mourns one one of its own. Jason Troiano, AOM's IT Project Manager, passed away after a brief illness last month. Jason touched many lives at the Academy–staff, member, and volunteer alike. At AOM headquarters, Jason led several critical database and system upgrades. An Annual Meeting and Specialized Conferences veteran, he was always happy to assist members, and did so with humor and kindness. Jason often said that work is about relationships and he built some strong and lasting ones with the people that he worked with. He will be greatly missed.
