Article Body

   As you might have heard, we have tragically lost a member of our Pitt-Johnstown alumni family in last evening’s fitness center shooting in suburban Pittsburgh.  We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Jody Billingsley.

   Today, Jody is being remembered across campus as an exemplary student and caring individual, who was highly regarded by both her professors and classmates.  She earned her degree in biology (cum laude) in 1994. 

   Jody was also a standout member of our women’s basketball team.  She was an excellent defender and rebounder, who ranks 21st in Pitt-Johnstown’s all-time rebounding list. 

   After graduation, she remained an active alumna, enjoying a successful career in the healthcare industry and making a positive difference in her community.  We extend our deepest condolences to her family and friends.

Jem Spectar,
