Joseph and Kate Castellano

On Saturday August 24th we lost an amazing friend, brother, son, and husband to a terrible car accident. Joe Castellano died on impact. 

Amazingly his wife Kate Castellano managed to escape the car and survive the crash. She was flown to a D.C. hospital with life threatening injuries. 

I am setting up this Go Fund Me page to help the Family (families) with funeral, memorial, and hospital costs. 

Joe and Kate touched the lives of many of us during our tenure at Mount Saint Mary’s University. They were kind to everyone, loved greatly, and did so much for everyone.

They were good Catholics and their faith and love for one another and to God could be felt by everyone around them. 

If you could donate even a share to help, I would truly appreciate the kindness.

edit: I am a friend of both Joe and Kate. Joe was a classmate and friend and Kate became my friend and roommate during college. 

The beneficiary of this fundraiser is Tony Castellano, Joe’s father.
