In Memoriam: Rod Rousseau 

The Concordia community lost a fierce supporter with the passing of alumnus and friend Rod (Joseph Rodolphe) Rousseau (L BComm 53) on Jan. 7 following a short and courageous battle with cancer.

In addition to having been active in municipal and provincial politics, holding various positions over the years from city councilor for Ste. Croix, to school commissioner, to president of the provincial Liberal Association, Rousseau, a father of five and grandfather of seven, had a long and successful career as the President of O'Sullivan College.

Throughout, Rousseau held a special place in his heart for his alma mater, Loyola College and Concordia University.

Rousseau was Second Vice-President of the Loyola Alumni Association, he belonged to the Loyola Medal Committee and he contributed in many different ways to the success of Concordia University, including but not limited to the Refectory refurbishment project of which he was a great champion.

He regularly attended Homecoming, golf tournaments and tours of Concordia’s new buildings.

Condolences have been sent to his wife Monique (Community Nursing 81) and his family on behalf of Concordia University. Donations in his name may be made to the Fondation de l'Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur de Montréal.
