Death of Ofc. Cornacchia, Ga. Tech Police Dept.

My dear friend and colleague James Cornacchia lost his fight with COVID-19 on June 1st after being hospitalized. I worked with him at the Georgia Tech Police Department for more than 19 1/2 years, and was his supervisor for much of that time. His wife Christal has been tested positive for COVID-19, and is now recovering herself. They have three young boys – Sal, Gio, and Vinny – who are devastated from the loss of their beloved dad.

James was 42 years old and also leaves behind his father Chet, mother Diana,  twin brother Joseph and his older brothers Anthony and Brian. James shared a close family bond with each of them. 

James was a very involved father and law enforcement officer.  James loved being a Cub Master for Cub Scouting and an Assistant Scout Manager for the Boy Scouts Of America. He participated in many events and trips with the youth in his community. He also loved to spend quality time with his family traveling to locations like Disney World.  He said his favorite part of being an officer at Georgia Tech was interacting with the students.

Please consider making a donation to help the Cornacchia family through this crisis. Your prayers for this family, and whatever financial support you can give in their greatest time of need, will be greatly appreciated.
