I recently met Judge Joseph Russo at the court. He was extremely courteous in welcoming me to practice at the court. I did not get opportunity to practice before him. I offer my prayers and condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. May God grant each of you the comfort, strength, and peace you need to make it through this most difficult time in your life. Respectfully,

Dearest Jean and family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss at such a young age. My prayers are with all of you as you go through this difficult time.

Condolence from Dolores Newman on October 6th, 2021 8:36 pm

I along with everyone else I’m sure, am so surprised and very sad to read of Judge Russo’s unexpected passing. He was so young and vibrant and an excellent Judge. I found out unexpectedly one day in the Justice Center that he also had a very good sense of humor! About 15 yrs ago I was commenting to my colleagues as we passed the photos of all the judges on 4th fl, pointing to his picture saying how cute he was. Not knowing he was walking right behind me, he agreed that it was indeed a pretty cute guy! My face red as a tomato, ran off! Lol There is nothing I can say to his family to help them feel better at this moment as I lived through this same heartache. Just take care of one another and in time, you will be able to talk about him with less tears and think of more wonderful memories. Have gratitude for what you had. Life will never be the same. Ask the Lord for guidance and peace as you move forward.

Condolence from Judge Michael (Mike) Nelson on October 7th, 2021 7:58 am

Joe, I’ll miss you both as a Judge and friend. Rest In Peace my brother, Rest.

Condolence from Anderson-Reitz family on October 7th, 2021 1:25 pm

Our sincere condolences to the family.

Amber, Eric, and Graham Anderson-Reitz

Condolence from Mike Oliver on October 7th, 2021 7:03 pm

I was so surprised to hear this sad news and my deepest thoughts go to Joe’s family. Joe was the Bradley Cooper of our Fraternity – wherever he was, there was a party or something fun happening. He was passionate about everything, he even organized the burning of an effigy (of who I forget, this would have been 1984). Knowing him, I am sure he was an incredible judge. In the bonds, EX

Condolence from Kathy Hoenigman on October 8th, 2021 4:25 pm

Dear Diana,

Condolence from Gina Kuhlman on October 9th, 2021 8:28 am

My heart goes out to the whole family. You raised a good son, Jeanie. ❤️

Hi Jean,
I learned of your dear son’s passing when I went to the Lancome counter today. My heart is breaking for you and your family. Treasure the many wonderful memories that you shared with Joseph. Ask God for peace and guidance. You son will forever have a special place in your heart.
My sincere condolences–Glenna Bruno
