Michelle Marie Petruzzi, 1979-2016
We lost our intrepid, much-loved Operations Manager Michelle Petruzzi on April 29, 2016. She passed away at the age of 36 after a very brave battle with pancreatic cancer. She was an invaluable part of App Camp since our inaugural summer and a dear friend. She loved seeing the girls empowered with the experience of building their own iPhone apps. Her spirit will always be part of the program. Our deepest sympathies go out to her husband Justin and all her family and friends.
With the generous support of Michelle & Justin's friends at Mapbox, we have established The Michelle Petruzzi Memorial Fund to honor Michelle's passion for supporting girls in engineering and tech. If you would like to make a donation to honor Michelle's memory, please click the button below.
