Gulfport, Fla. – A memorial service for Stetson University College of Law Associate Vice President of College Relations Dorothy “Dotti” Bressi will be held at 12:15 p.m. on Sept. 8 in Stetson’s Great Hall at 1401 61st St. S., Gulfport. A reception will follow.

Dr. Bressi died on July 2, following a battle with leukemia.

“This memorial service is for the Stetson community of faculty, staff, alumni and friends who want to share their appreciation and express their loss for a dynamic person who touched so many. Dotti was an incredibly positive person whose energy, drive, and vision literally changed the College of Law,” said Vice President and Dean of the College of Law Darby Dickerson.

After joining Stetson in August 2000, Dr. Bressi was instrumental in increasing scholarships and awards for students, creating new professorships and faculty chairs for professors, and raising more than $30 million for the college during the successful five-year Cornerstone Campaign.

Bressi was honored with the prestigious Dean’s Award for her commitment to the College of Law in 2005.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be sent to the Dorothy Bressi Memorial Fund at Stetson University College of Law, care of the College Relations Office, 1401 61st St. S., Gulfport, FL 33707.
