Jesse Pafundi

I was born and raised in Grafton, NY where I currently live with my 4 year old daughter Maggie.  I attended LaSalle Institute with Michael Casey and graduated from Champlain College in Burlington, VT.  This is where I met Mike’s wife Jillian

Currently I’m pursuing a career in sales and was drawn to the organization because of my close ties to Mike and Jill.  Community service and acts of good will have always been something I have tried to incorporate into my life.

 

 

Anabella De La Rosa

Anabella was born in the small village of San Felipe in Belize and after a week of being on this earth, moved to Gallon Jug where her family still resides. She attended Gallon Jug Community School (now Casey Community School) and was lucky to be mentored by Michael Casey who pushed her to pursue higher education. She graduated from GJCS in 2004 and attended one year of high school in Belize. With the help of the Casey, Schuessler and Dodge families she enrolled at Tabor Academy in Marion, MA and graduated in 2009. With the help of many others she continued her studies at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA and graduated with a BA in Anthropology in 2013. She is now employed at Equinox Inc. as a Residence Counselor in their Domestic Violence Shelter.

In Belize, many children do not continue their schooling after 8th grade and experiencing this first hand, Anabella knows how prevalent this issue is. Education changed her life and opened doors that were not there for her before. Two of her sisters are currently enrolled in the program and one has already graduated thus she sees the great work that this organization is doing. She knows that she will continue to see success stories as she works with Worlds Window and can only hope that her involvement will aid and perhaps make a difference in children’s lives as it was made in hers.
