Joe was born in Hammond, IN, February 1957.

He held a variety of positions including Senior Manager at KPMG Peat Marwick, Vice President of Finance/Reporting at JMB Realty Corp. and most recently, until his retirement in March of 2014, Chief Finance Officer, Treasurer, Secretary and Executive Vice President at Lillibridge Healthcare Real Estate, a Ventas Company.

Joe and Nanette met on a blind date in 1989 at The Como Inn in Chicago. It was love at first sight. They married in 1991 and went on to raise their four sons in Naperville.

Joe was an Eagle Scout and volunteered as a troop committee member, leading all of his sons to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. Throughout his life, Joe loved Pokagon State Park, and cherished his visits there from when he was a young boy into adulthood.

Those who knew Joe well, were aware of his love for Indiana University, the Cubs, McDonalds, tamales and tacos from Taco Real.
