Joe (Regis 84) and his wife Karen (Wahlert 86) are strong supporters of the Catholic education system and are proud to be part of the Xavier community. Joe is "happy" to be dancing this year, and while it might not be easy to watch, he feels it is a small way to give back to the community that has provided so much for their children: Lauren (X19), and Mia (X22).
He has been employed with MidAmerican Energy the past 29 years and enjoys spending time with family and friends, golfing, following Xavier athletics and cheering on the Hawks.
