John Rossiter Memorial Scholarship

John Rossiter was a dedicated member of the paramedic community who gave as much as he could to the profession while bringing happiness to all of those he encountered along the way. John was a highly respected member of the paramedic community and during Hurricane Juan in 2003, John’s life was cut short in the line of duty. As someone who always went above and beyond to help those in need, the John Rossiter Memorial Scholarships are a way to preserve that legacy and continue helping people today, many years after his untimely passing.

Award value – determined on an annual basis
