Ottaviani Family Fund

The Ottaviani Family Fund has been established as a result of the unexpected death of Stefano Ottaviani, at the age of 47, due to a massive heart attack.  He leaves behind his beloved wife Catherine, and their three sons Sebastian (14), Spencer (13), and Cameron (10).  Stefano was a truly amazing husband and father, who devoted his life to his family and community.  In addition to the tragic loss of her husband Stefano, Catherine is coping with an ongoing battle with cancer.  She is collaborating with Sloan Kettering Hospital as she moves through this process, and she is receiving her chemo therapy locally.  Their amount of need can not be understated.  All funds raised will aid this family with funeral related expenses, as well as with the mounting medical related expenses.  Please consider supporting this amazing family.  Every donation helps, no matter how big or how small.
