We are greatly saddened by the tragic loss of John Sarvey, Executive Director at School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs and a Senior Associate at the Dukakis Center, who passed away unexpectedly over Thanksgiving weekend.
John was not only devoted to all of us and the success of the Dukakis Center and the School, but for many of us he was a close personal friend. We delighted in his passion, his warmth, and his commitment to social justice through his work with us, the Hyams Foundation, and with City Year.
John’s obituary in the Boston Globe further details his distinguished career as well as his dedication to his family.
