Memorial for Curtis Bressler

It is with deep sadness that I inform you that Professor Curtis Bressler, beloved member of our Mathematics Department, passed away of a heart attack early the morning of Friday, August 27, 2010.

Curtis has been a part of the Ohlone College family for the past decade and will be sorely missed by all of us. His dedication to teaching and learning was extraordinary and his love of his students was profound.

Memorial Service

A memorial service for Mr. Bressler will be Saturday, September 4, 2010 at 10:00am at Bridges Community Church in Fremont.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Chinese Children Adoption International. Curtis and Nancy Bressler have two daughters adopted from China.

One of Mr. Bressler's former students created a Prof. Bressler Memorial group on Facebook.

I am in contact with the Bressler family. Please send inquiries to me at
