What a wonderful friend we have in Rupesh. He is only 41 years old, was diagnosed in June 2016 and retired shortly thereafter
from NY Life and MainStay Investments after 11 years as a Regional Vice President. Though ALS has taken away the use of his arms,
Rupesh continues to welcome all with his embracing smile and quick wit. He can no longer drive, depending on his wife and
caregivers for assistance. He and Siobhan live in Plano with their two beautiful boys, Ronan, 6 and Keaton 4, who not only
entertain him, but are the light of his world. Rupesh graduated from NC State University with a degree in finance and was honored last year
to represent the community at our Warriors of Wall Street event in October. He will do so again this year and is honored
that Wells Fargo and supporting firms conducted a golf tournament in his name at Prestonwood Hills Country Club on August 24.
NY Life also conducted a corporate campaign in April in his honor to raise funds for ALS TDI towards ALS research.
