As a former member of the Cabot educational community, my connection with John goes back a long way, and I am overtaken with sadness. John's depth in soul and spirit added incredible value to any room or organization that he was involved. How fortunate we were in our ed tech community to have John touch our lives and learned from him. His contributions have been invaluable and unique and some of the more powerful ones I have experienced. Through his influence on us, he has touched the lives of many schoolchildren.  He will be so missed.

It is with a heavy heart that I report to you that John McSweeney, dedicated tech coordinator at Cabot and fine friend to many of us has passed away suddenly.  He reportedly suffered an aneurysm last evening.  The family has requested no phone calls or visits at this time.  I will try to keep you posted as to arrangements etc. as they develop. 
Incredible shock.. John was a real treasure for us all.
