Remembering Tim Mazzoni

Tim MazzoniProfessor Emeritus Tim Mazzoni died of cancer on April 6 at the age of 73 in San Diego. Tim was a faculty member in the Department of Educational Policy and Administration (now the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development) for 27 years, and mentored both his colleagues and students with grace and ease. He was the acting chair of the department, 1998-99, and chair, 1990-91.

An informal celebration of his life was held on April 17 in San Diego, where he and his wife, Judy, moved after retirement. A Minnesota celebration will be held on Thursday, May 13, 1-4 p.m. in the Johnson Room at the McNamara Alumni Center. Friends and colleagues are urged to drop in. Judy will greet friends starting at 2 p.m. before turning over the event to Professor Emeritus Neal Nickerson, who will introduce speakers and facilitate the honoring of Tim's contributions.
