Good Morning All,
Jerry has been in our prayers and I share the sad news that he passed away on April 9, 2017. We pray for Jerry, his Wife, Rosemary, their Children, Robert, Claudia and Dermont. Many of us knew Jerry and so many more were touched by his good heart, his Ministry and work at Manhattan College. He will be missed by all. Mike McEneney, a classmate of Jerry, made a heartfelt remark, Jerry was a good friend and Classmate of another Jasper, Dan Capozzi, who was called home on April 7, 2017, ” now they are together, reliving their College days.” We pray for Jerry’s Family as they mourn the loss of their loved one. The College has shared the following Obituary which includes Mass of Christian Burial information on April 17, 2017 in Congers, N.Y. Thank you. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

I’m so sad to hear of the passing of Dr. Jerry Cashman. When I was at Manhattan in the late 60’s, the Jasper Journal office on the top floor of Thomas Hall was my “clubhouse”. I was there every day between classes, just a couple of doors away from the Dean of Men’s office. So I saw Dr. Cashman and his assistant Mrs. Williamson just about every day, and they were two of the nicest people you could ever meet. They were never too busy to help you out or just chat. He was a good man. I’ll miss him.
