Remembering Ron Perez

Ron Perez was dean of the Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health, but he was more than that. He was a trusted confidant, go-to administrator and caring friend who exuded good humor and enthusiasm. He served numerous roles during his 30-year career at UWM, always willing to take on a new task.

Perez passed away Dec. 16 after several months of illness. He is survived by his wife, Christine, and daughter, Kennedy, a student at UW-Madison.
