An Enduring Tribute

The Ithaca College community is a close one. As students, as alumni, as faculty and staff, we all share a connection with one another through our association with this amazing institution. And as much of a lasting impression as Ithaca College has on our lives, each one of us leaves an equally indelible mark on our IC community.

The faces you see below are members of our college community who have died. Here, we take a moment to reflect on their lives. We remember their generosity, their contributions, their intellect and interests. Each story describes the life of a loved one lost, offering us a chance to reconnect with a unique spirit, or make an acquaintance for the very first time.

Leslie Schettino served as the director of Ithaca College's Office of Student Disability Services. She began her work there in 1994, and in September 1999, started her tenure as director. All who had the pleasure of knowing and working with Leslie know the depth of her commitment to students and her willingness to advocate for those with special needs. Her leadership in this area made a great difference for hundreds of students throughout the years.

Leslie was known for her laughter, her gentle but strong determination, and her love for her family, students, co-workers, and animals, especially her dogs. She lived her life with an open heart and mind. She is greatly missed by all whose lives she touched.
