A Memorial For Joe

Thursday, January 26, 2012.

After the family had their private services and burial on Wednesday, a public memorial was held on Thursday. "A Memorial for Joe," was held in the Byrce Jordan Center and tickets were made available for free to the public. The tickets went fast the morning they were released, and some that were posted on ebay for sale were quickly taken down. Letterman and friends of the Paterno's were also given tickets.

People walked through the rain and into the Bryce Jordan Center as the screen in the stadium still displays Joe's photo.

The memorial had former players, the Nike chairman, and several others speak, in addition to video montages throughout Joe's tenure. All the speeches highlighted Joe's qualities off the football field, and many talked about Sue and her great influence.

I was creating a video of the memorial so only took a few photos throughout the memorial as I was stationed with the video camera.

Rest In Peace Joe.
