Maurice J. Spagnoletti Reward Fund

Donation protected
Please help bring those responsible for my husband's murder to justice by contributing to the Maurice J. Spagnoletti Reward Fund.

Hi, my name is Marisa Spagnoletti.  Maurice J. Spagnoletti was the love of my life and the father of my only child.  Despite humble beginnings, working as a bank teller and taking night courses, Maurice worked hard to become a highly respected member of the banking community, and an incredible humanitarian.  Over 40 years he demonstrated his integrity, compassion and courage, helping others while carving out our piece of the American Dream.   

Then, at the height of his career in 2011, Maurice took on his greatest challenge when he accepted a position as a senior executive at Doral Bank in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  His hope?  To transform the institution, revitalize the community, and improve the lives of the people of Puerto Rico, who he loved dearly.  Instead, on his way home to dinner with me and our loving daughter, Lucy, he was brutally murdered at a stop light in a hail of bullets. 

As a result of his murder, my life, as I knew it, ended as well.  His murder sparked outrage both nationally and internationally, but five years later remains unsolved and still under active investigation by the FBI.  I have great confidence and faith that through the tireless efforts of the FBI, and with the help of concerned people like you - he will soon get the justice he deserves, and be remembered by all as a true hero of our time. 

Justice will prevail.  But we need your help!

Your contribution to the Maurice J. Spagnoletti Reward Fund will go directly to a fund established by the FBI for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of my beloved husband.   We hope that this reward will encourage more people to come forward to share what they know about my husband’s murder.  So far, the FBI contributed $20,000, I’ve contributed $10,000 of my own savings, and we've raised $5,000 in small dollar amounts from family and friends.  But it's not enough.

During his lifetime, Maurice worked tirelessly to help improve the lives of untold numbers of people.  Now that we're able to reach out to you and tell our story, we're hoping you'll respond with the same generosity towards him and our family.  I humbly ask for your support, and your contribution to his reward fund.

The road to justice and peace has been a long one for my daughter, Lucy, and me.  We continue to struggle with our loss every day.  It's been more devastating than words can say. But now I have the courage and determination to move forward, not with my husband, but in loving memory of him.   Justice will prevail.  Good will conquer evil.  

Please join me today in my journey to honor my beloved husband, bring his killer(s) to justice, and take steps to end ALL violence.   Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for whatever you can contribute to these efforts,
