Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center joins The Robertson Foundation

June 26, 2017

A native of San Antonio, Josie Robertson was elected to Memorial Sloan-Kettering's Board of Overseers in 2004. Her involvement with Memorial Sloan-Kettering was just one of her many civic and philanthropic activities, which included service as chairman of The Classroom, Inc. Council for Learning and as a director and member of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Prior to her death in 2010, she worked with her husband, Julian, to support a range of causes in education, medical research, and other areas. The couple was married for 38 years and raised three sons.

"Josie was a very special person who excelled in all that she undertook, as a wise colleague on the Board, a kind, and gracious friend, and so much more," said Douglas A. Warner III, Chairman of the Boards of Overseers and Managers of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. "All of us at Memorial Sloan-Kettering thank the Robertson Foundation for helping us to honor Josie in a way that is worthy of the brave and wonderful person she was and all that she accomplished."
