Waving Goodbye


John Kreger

Jeff Formosa


After 24 years of outstanding and dedicated service to CAASD and MITRE, Jeff Formosa is sailing off, possibly bike-riding off, definitely driving off into the sunset and into retirement armed with a passport to Florida and an itinerary of fun. Known for his never-fail, can-do attitude, relentless positivity, and get 'er done spirit (using The Formosa Principle as possible--i.e., always charge direct when possible), it's hard to see him go. Please thank Jeff for his service, congratulate him on his career achievements, and leave your well wishes as we say goodbye and good luck!

Jeff has asked for no fanfare with his departure; however, if you are looking for ways to give him a hard time before he retires, please contact Nicole Elliott (nelliott@mitre.org).
