The Rush community gathered to remember J. Robert (Bob) Clapp, Jr., the late executive vice president and executive director of Rush University Hospitals, on Oct. 11. He passed away on Aug. 30 after a diagnosis with pancreatic cancer in March.
From personal stories about his love for basketball and public transportation to his passion for diversity and leadership, Bob was remembered in a moving service at Rush. During the service, a special memorial tribute video was shown with interviews from people throughout Rush. Videos featuring the service and the tribute can be viewed here and on YouTube.
The family requests that any donations be made in support of Rush’s diversity efforts, the Rush University Health Systems Management educational program and/or to the Adopt-a-Family outreach program. Gifts may be made online at rush.convio.net/BobClapp. Memorial gifts may be sent to Rush University Medical Center, 1700 W. Van Buren St., Suite 250, Chicago, IL 60612.
