Professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Louis Berger Chair in Computing and Engineering

Ph.D. University of Michigan
B.S., M.E., Manhattan College

“I’m an environmental engineer and a professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Tufts University outside Boston. I grew up in New York City and was educated at Manhattan College and the University of Michigan. Aside from Tufts, I’ve worked for the U.S. EPA, NOAA and Texas A&M University and the University of Colorado. I was fortunate enough to spend the 1997 and 1998 school years in London at Imperial College and the University of Reading.

I was originally drawn to environmental engineering because of my love of the outdoors. I am an avid fly fisherman and hiker. My primary research focus is surface water-quality modeling, and my primary professional goal is to apply engineering, mathematics and computing to maintain a high quality environment in a wise and cost-efficient fashion. I feel blessed to have found a profession where I can meld my love of mathematics and science with my passion for the natural environment. In addition, I get to share it with others through my teaching and writing.”

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) updates on Kitson, Kevin (MC1970)


Good Morning,

I have received an update from Tom Delaney regarding Kevin Kitson, who has been in our prayers and I want to share Kevin’s note and Tom’s comments with you. We need to raise the volume for Kevin and his Family as he approaches the end of his Journey and approaches it cloaked in God’s Love and accepting with courage and trust, God’s Will.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

Dear Phil,

Attached is e-mail from Kevin Kitson whom we have been praying for.

As you read, you will see we need to pray for Kevin in the last phase of his journey on earth.

Kevin is a boy of the Bronx that I graduated with from Cardinal Spellman High School with and MC.

A St.John’s University Law School graduate who worked in both the Westchester and Bronx District Attorneys offices before starting a law practice in White Plains with his wife over 25 years ago.

He has given to many others in his life.

He once told me he gave back to both these institutions because of what the De La Salle Christian Brothers did for him and shaping his life.

He is active in many causes to help people including a priest, Fr. Mark Connell, in the tough neighborhoods of Newburgh ,NY with his San Miguel Academy with no tuition requirements for middle school children to break the patterns of drugs, crime and poverty usually in their future.

So let us join in prayer for Kevin,his wife and family as Kevin said below and ” as always, I have resigned my fate to God’s Providence”

Dear friends,

For more than 6 months now I have attempted to treat my pancreatic cancer and the numerous liver tumors that I was diagnosed with, with potent chemo therapy treatments. I have to admit I never anticipated what going through those treatments would entail. The first recommended rounds of those drugs were ineffectual, and unfortunately the second attempt, with different, more experimental and aggressive, drugs was also unsuccessful.

One of the complications from the advanced state of the liver cancer is that a larger tumor has developed pressing on the vena cava, which compromises my bodies ability to normally transfer fluids and impairs my ability to breath, digest, and function. It has been one of the main causes of my pain, and unfortunately has been unaffected by any of the treatments.

As a result, I have discontinued any other form of treatment. I have greatly appreciated the support I have received from you my friends, and the many prayers that have been offered for my benefit. I gave this disease the best fight that I had, but some fights can’t be won. While this outcome was not unanticipated, it is disappointing, but I have resigned my fate, as I always have, to God’s providence.

Over the next several weeks I will be continuing to live and struggle with this disease, but I would hope to find the strength and time to have brief visits with you my friends. Please contact Pat via email and she will let you know if and when I’m up to visitors.

Thank you again for all the love and support,

JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) commends Kitson, Kevin [MC1970]


Good Evening All,
I share with you the following email Ellie Calabro received from Fellow Jasper, Kevin Kitson, Esq, ‘ 70 BA. Kevin has been in our prayers and we need to keep the volume up for him and his Family.

From KJK:

This email will serve as an update to you my dear friends,

My treatment has been overseen by an excellent physician and very good man named Joseph Ruggiero. Joe is an Italian American from Brooklyn who no doubt spent a great deal of his time in the library at Harvard while I was during my college days pursuing other activities.

It was touch and go with Dr. Joe for a while since he didn’t easily adapt to my Irish sense of humor. However, we’ve gotten past that now and have become friendly to the point where recently he engaged me in a discussion the day after St. Patrick’s Day wherein he was trying to convince me that that St. Joseph’s day had comparable festive traditions to those engaged in by my fellow Celts.

It was rather hard to keep a straight face because other than the special pastries made for St. Joseph’s day there wasn’t much else happening. I thought back to the years of marching up Fifth Avenue behind a bagpipe band with family and friends and then post parade dinners and drinks. So after we discussed where you can get the best pastries for St. Joseph’s day I thought better of trying to win any argument with my oncologist so as far as I’m concerned St. Joseph’s day is more important than Christmas.

I have finished my fifth round of chemotherapy and am scheduled to undergo CAT scan studies March 31 to see what effect they have had on the cancer and then regardless they have scheduled a sixth round of for April 1st

The good thing about cancer is that it gives you time for focused thought and prayer. The bad thing about cancer is that it gives you time that you have to deal with it. Prior to be diagnosed New Year’s eve I had had great plans. I was in Florida at our home on the ocean with my wife and children for a family vacation. I was going to slow it down and spend more of my time enjoying what I considered to be the fruits of my labors.

Evidently God had other plans for me and he called me to go on this journey. When you are healthy and things are going your way its easy to lose sight of the fact that there is so much that is outside of our control.

So at this point you know everything I do and I ask that you continue to remember me in your prayers.
Please keep Kevin and his Family in your prayers as we continue to pray that Kevin’s treatment’s have the desired effect and that he will be on the road to recovery. Thank you. God Bless.

Phil Colon

People say the corporate world has no soul. Corporations don’t give a rat’s behind about their employees especially after they’re gone. And the flip side is employees are just there to get a paycheck. They do what it takes and if they’re lucky they have a job that pays the bills, while they can’t wait to get the heck outta there. Well I’m here to tell you it ain’t always so. I mean we have a great example right here in North Carolina.

*** and ***

One has to feel confident that science will have a prominent seat at this roundtable. After all we are talking about our environment, clean water and biological integrity and human safety and this all falls under the umbrella of North Carolina’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources headed by McCrory appointee John Skvarla who holds a B.A. in economics from Manhattan College and a J.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Law.
