About the Presenters
Jim and Evelyn Piazza have been working to stop hazing since their son Tim passed away in 2017 after he was hazed upon joining a fraternity at Pennsylvania State University. They were instrumental in passing a bill in Tim’s name to strengthen Pennsylvania’s hazing laws, and started the Timothy J. Piazza Memorial Foundation to provide help for children and adults who need prosthesis — work their son, Tim, wanted to do after graduating college. They live in Lebanon, New Jersey, and their son Mike currently attends Penn State. Jim is a partner in a large professional services firm and graduated from Rider University. Evelyn graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey.
