Mourning the Loss of Dr. Ofori-Brobbey

BrobbeyThe Jesse H. Jones School of Business mourns the loss of one of its outstanding professors, Dr. Ofori-Brobbey. Dr. Brobbey joined the JHJ faculty in 2005 and served as a Professor of Management teaching courses in communications, leadership, and organizational strategy.

I was very fortunate to have been taught by Dr. Brobbey. He was a great man, with such humility, who cared deeply about the success of his students.

The following funeral arrangements have been planned. Condolences can be dropped off at the Dean’s Office and will be delivered to Mrs. Brobbey in two weeks.
