On January 3, 2003, my father died. On February 20, 2006, one of my mentors and father-figures passed away. He was good man who ran a great Non-profit called Young Adult Institute. Within the NYC tri-state area, Joe Rut, through his work as a CFO, helped people with disabilities with services and becoming self-sufficient.
Once I left the company to move back to L.A., we stayed in touched. He would always start the call, "Hey Joe F., this is Joe R. speaking." He had a big heart and he was a good guy. I didn't expect to say this again this week, but Godspeed.
If you want to do some good in his name, please donate today. Again, Godspeed, Joe.
