For more than a decade he served as the head of Jefferson Pariah’s Department of Emergency Management. Dr. Maestri resided on the West Bank during his years of service to both Holy Cross and Jefferson Parish. Our thoughts and prayers are extended to his family. We appreciate his passion for responsive Emergency Management particularly related to the threats of tropical weather.
We would like to extend our condolences to the family of Dr. Walter Maestri. Dr. Maestri passed away in early June following complications from an illness. Dr. Maestri was a professor and former President of Our Lady of Holy Cross College which is now the University of Holy Cross.
