Remembering Jo Little

Jo Little (1954 - 2017)

We are very sad to share the news of the passing of Mary Josephine (Jo) Little, our office manager for 18 years. With her warm smile and quiet wisdom, Jo was the keel that guided our ship for almost two decades managing the office, looking out for the faculty and staff and helping the program to flourish. She passed away after an unexpected and courageous battle with sepsis. The family hopes to establish a scholarship in Jo's honor.


A memorial/celebration of Jo's life was held on Sunday, April 30th at the United Methodist Church at the Corner of Anapamu and Garden in Santa Barbara at 3:00 PM. View Jo's Obituary at:
