Catching Up With Jim Marrone '83

Mercy was the key to my success, said Jim Marrone, ’83, of Brewster, NY. He added, “Mercy put everything together for me." Jim was born in the Bronx but enrolled in colleges in Connecticut and upstate New York. When he moved to Westchester, Mercy accepted his credits and he completed his four-year degree at the Yorktown and Dobbs Ferry campuses. While attending Mercy Jim worked as a substitute teacher while raising his son, Justin, as a single parent.

After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Mercy, Jim initially taught in Westchester but the principal of the school made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. He asked Jim to join him in starting up a public special education school in Clarkstown, NY. Jim jumped at the opportunity and became a special education teacher, a student counselor, a science teacher, and also enjoyed administrative responsibilities at the Birchwood School (K-12). His good fortune continued when he met his better half and soul mate, Patricia Quilty, at Birchwood; ironically, another Mercy grad.

Jim eventually went to Pace University to receive his Master’s Degree and taught Educational Psychology and Psychology of Adolescents at St. Thomas Aquinas College in Rockland County.

“Mercy was the beginning of my journey," Jim said. “I went into education because I believe in service to others,” – ironically, the same as the Mercy College motto.

Even though he has been retired for the past four years, every now and then he still makes the trip from Brewster to Clarkstown to volunteer.

Jim has been a consistent donor for many years to Mercy College since he wants to give back to the school that “put everything together” for him.
