  1. I am from Development Services Group, a Maryland-based research firm that worked with Ed Latessa for decades. I am writing an In Memoriam for him and am trying to get his date of birth. Do you happen to know which funeral home his family is dealing with? Many thanks, Mike Hopps

  2. Dr. Ed Lattessa
    Hard to put into words the impact that Dr. Lattessa had on me and more importantly the impact he had on the field of corrections in the world! Someone wrote recently of Ed, “A man casting the shining light of reason in a sea of ignorance.” Truer words were never spoken!
