We love you Joe. You will be missed,and never replaced. All trustees that were on the board at his time of firing need to be replaced.

    It’s incredible the number of lives that Paterno touched. Not just his football players–but people from all walks of life. Those who had him enter their lives were forever touched. What a great gift.

Joe Pa was part of the reason why in 92′ i went to PSU all the way from Puerto Rico, not knowing anyone in PA. There i met my husband who liven in PA and went to PSU for the same reasons. We now have a beautifull family with 3 kids. Joe Pa will always be part of our family, even our 8yr old daughter called him “abuelo Jopa” ( grandpa Joe ).
Thank you, Joe Pa. You will always be in our hearts.

Joe Pa…
You were part of my life since I was 17 as a PSU freshman. 30 years later, I still remember beign a star struck student, shaking your hand on the field when we we beat Nebraska and Alabama. Those were the days when you got on the radio before each game and begged us not to tear down the goal posts after the games but it was too much fun not to! You touched the lives of so many without even knowing it. Your work ethic is to be admired, your family values are instilled in all of us who have ties to Penn State because we are all part of a solid family and you are the head of that family. You will always be the heart and Soul of Penn State. Thank you does not seem to be enough..God Bless and Rest In Peace
