In Memoriam: Jeffrey Capaccio

It is not everyday that someone comes along who makes everyone around him feel special. This was Jeff Capaccio. His passion, his zest for life, his taste for the fine food and drink and everything Italian – all made for someone whom everyone was drawn to. His passion carried over to his determination to help youth struggling with their mental health. Jeff joined the AIM Youth Mental Health Board several years ago and immediately started to recruit his friends to get involved. Jeff will be missed dearly.
