The Hunter College community is saddened to announce the passing of Professor Joe Roitberg. Joe had served in Hunter’s Department of Mathematics and Statistics since 1972. He was a well-respected teacher and known in his field of algebraic topology. Joe passed away on the morning of October 8, 2015, after a decade-long fight with cancer.

The family will be sitting shiva on:

  • Saturday (10/10) 7:30 PM -10:00 PM and Monday (10/12) 4:00 -7:00 PM at the home of Joe's daughter, Daphne Roitberg Mizrahi (67 Melanie Lane, Syosett, NY)

We send our deepest condolences to Joe's wife and family.
