UWG recently held a retirement reception for Director of Financial Services John Roessler for 10 years of service in the Office of the Controller.
Colleagues used the reception as a time to send best wishes and share fond memories of working with Roessler. While highlighting his strong work ethic, punctuality and hard work over the years, co-workers were very candid in letting Roessler know how much he will be missed.
“I will miss the people at the university more than anything,” he said. “The energy of the students and the vibrancy of the university over the years have been great.”
Roessler joined UWG after retiring from Hyatt Hotels where he worked for 30 years, and surprisingly he is still not quite ready to give up working completely. “I will get a part-time job because I want to be around people,” said Roessler. “Traveling is fine, but I still like the work environment. I’ve been working for 45 years so I want to continue meeting people and working with them.”
