Dear Sacred Heart University Community,                              

Trustee Peter Terpeluk

We have received word that Sacred Heart University Trustee Peter Terpeluk Jr. has passed away of a heart attack. A former ambassador to Luxembourg and Republican National Committee (RNC) finance chairman, he had been a member of Sacred Heart’s Board of Trustees since January 2007. He was also the recipient of an honorary doctorate from the University.
Mr. Terpeluk served as U.S.  Ambassador to Luxembourg from 2002-2005. He was named finance chairman of the RNC in July 2009 and resigned at the end of 2010.

Please join me in remembering his wife Diane, their children, Trey and Meredith, and the rest of his family in your prayers.

With warm regards,
