Lasting Legacy: The Joseph Michael Chubbuck Memorial Scholarship

Joseph Chubback - memorial

In 2011, Joseph Michael Chubbuck was a typical UC student, working toward his B.S. in physics in the hopes of securing a career in military research. But the Chubbuck family’s world was turned upside down in early 2012, when Joey was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer. He passed away in August 2013.

Shortly after his death, Joey was awarded his degree posthumously, and his parents Barbara and Joseph ’11 endowed the Joseph Michael Chubbuck ’14 Memorial Scholarship, awarded to physics students at UC that demonstrate academic promise and good character.

The Chubbucks have also started The Joseph Michael Chubbuck Foundation, which provides financial assistance to cancer patients and their families, supports cancer research, and advocates for patients and families during treatment.
