“Ernesto was the rare colleague and friend who freely shared his knowledge and expertise”

February 8, 2010 | Memorial

Ernesto was the rare colleague and friend who freely shared his knowledge and expertise, and was always ready with advice, help, and encouragement.  Ernesto sought out the best in people and supported the growth and development of colleagues, staff, and students alike in the service of CUNY’s mission.  He brought creativity, integrity, warmth and wisdom to everything he did.  Ernesto was a proud product of CUNY and of the City of New York.  He was a role model to many.  His absence leaves a great void.  He holds a place in many hearts at CUNY and in countless communities beyond.  I am so grateful to have known him.
