Alumni Fellow Dr. Jerod Loeb

October 10, 2013 11:47 am

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of the College of Staten Island’s first-ever Alumni Fellow, Jerod Michael Loeb, PhD.  Dr. Loeb passed away October 9, 2013 at age 63 after a courageous fight against prostate cancer. 

Dr. Loeb, an alumnus of Richmond College, 1973, visited campus earlier this year to meet with students in the Nursing Department, College faculty and administrators, and CSI Alumni Association President Dr. Arthur Merola, DPM ’84, ’85. He also presented his keynote address, “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly,” which opened with fond and comical remembrances of his days at Richmond College before turning to its main focus, which was the current state of healthcare in the nation. 

Dr. Loeb was the Executive Vice President for Healthcare Quality Evaluation at The Joint Commission for more than 19 years. He was the loving husband and best friend for 27 years of Sherri, and father and role model to his two loving daughters, Jennifer Michelle and Rebecca Elyse. He was also a special “dad” to his two puppies, Hero and Halligan. 

Dr. Loeb earned his doctoral degree at The State University of New York–Downstate Medical Center in 1976. He received the National Quality Forum and The Joint Commission’s John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Honorary Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012. 

Please join me in remembering a great man, a great friend, and a great Alumni Fellow.
