Vince and Sue Van Moorleghem in Good Samaritan Hospital Video
Sue and Vince Marullo appeared in a promotional video for Good Samaritan's Cardiovascular Services. Vince was sent to the hospital in 2014 from his doctor's office with severe heart trouble. The doctor at Good Samaritan soon realized the situation was far worse than anyone had realized and without quick action Vince would die. He had a 7 hour surgery for a triple heart bypass and valve replacement. As one family member put it, "They were famous for one night!" Sounds like they had a little more going for them than stardom. Some would say they had a miracle. Listen to their story and how lucky they were that Vince was in good hands.
Joyce Vasha has been recently named to the John Carroll High School Educational Foundation Board. This is a link to the article in the school news magazine. Her article is on the last page. She was asked to serve on the board for a three year term by the president of the school, Father John Macdonald. The Board's purpose is to "further the spiritual, education, and social mission of John Carroll Catholic High School". They do this through fundraising and public relations.
John Carroll is a catholic high school in Birmingham, Alabama. Joyce's two sons, Aron and Alec both graduated from John Carroll; Alec graduated last year. Joyce has provided valuable service to the school in the past and now continues that work in helping the school maintain its high standards.
The real interesting part of the story is Fr. John was the seminary at the same time as Fr. Jeff Mollner and know each other. What a small world!
Jacy Riedmann Interviewed by Midlands Business Journal
Jacy Riedmann was given a nice interview and write up by the Midlands Business Journal last November. The article discussed her position, vice president, at Amoura productions in Omaha. She discussed her background, her family, personal milestones, her mentor (Chuck Amoura), how she sees her business changing and her many personal interests. Below are a few of her comments:
Accomplishments or milestones: Getting chosen to join the Inman Ambassadors in January this year was very exciting. Inman is a well-respected tech and news outlet for our industry.
First job: I worked as a production assistant on TV shows and a couple film sets. You learn a lot about the industry when you're a PA because you fill in wherever
Biggest career break: Being chosen for the National Association of Realtors Social Media Advisory Board was a huge step forward for me.
The best advice I have received: "Eat dessert first." When my grandpa said this as a child,
I thought it was a good excuse for ice cream, now I realize it's about embracing life and not putting off the best parts until later. It's how I justify my frequent traveling.
About my family: I am the youngest of four children. My parents, Mike and Coleen Riedmann, are both in Omaha. My sister Nicole is in the industry as well and works for NEI Global in Omaha. My brother Lucas is a superintendent for Kiewit and my sister Natalie is a pediatrician for CHI Health. How my business will change in the next decade: The consumer is demanding better visuals when shopping online. This means real estate listing photos are being viewed less as a splurge and more as a necessity. Video tours are following
that same trend.
She has been spending a fair amount of time at the Amoura's newer location in Austin, Texas (I think). They have gradually been expanding their operations around the country.
Francie Riedmann Weis Serves on Nebraska Supreme Court
Francie Riedmann (seated on the right) was appointed by then governor Dave Heineman to the Nebraska Supreme Court to hear the case involving the for the Keystone XL pipeline going through Nebraska. She is taking the place of Judge John Wright who recused himself from the hearing. You can read about the case in this article from the Lincoln Journal Star.
Francie was appointed to the Nebraska Court of Appeals by Gov. Heineman in 2012. Several of the current judges on the state Supreme Court also served on the Court of Appeals before their appointment to the state Supreme Court. Perhaps this is a sign of things to come for her.
The court reached their decision this winter with a split decision allowing the pipeline to proceed. However more lawsuits may be filed. So for now her work on the state supreme court is finished.
