Last month, we celebrated our “diamond in the rough” as Jo Rosen turned 75. Our fearless, smart, young-at-heart President and Founder still works “eight days a week” to ensure no one is isolated because of Parkinson’s. Below are just some of the comments you submitted to wish Jo a happy birthday. 


Congratulations, Jo, on your success to have paved the way for the founding of PRO and  its accomplishments…to be continued. 

You're my guru. Love always,

Happy Birthday Jo. You are an amazing human and have done so much for the community! Sending much love.

Thank you for being a beacon of light and helping us navigate through this process. A dozen roses, orchids, and all your favorite flowers, you deserve them all.
-Butch and Danielle


Dear Jo, I am beyond grateful for the support of PRO, both to you personally and to all of the various support groups that are under PRO's umbrella.  You have truly provided and continue to provide a vibrant network of resources that achieve PRO's goals of assuring that people dealing with Parkinson's, either as a caregiver or a person with the disease, will never be alone.  Thank you for your many years of dedication to this community.

Congratulations Dearest Jo for 75 years of being who you are; to our Jo, the perfect Mentor for our Parkinson's journey!  THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO 

Happy Birthday -- to your fabulous and continuing support for Parkinson's!

Celebrating you, Jo, and the amazing advocate you are for all of those affected by Parkinsons, both the individual and family and friends.  We are so lucky to have you in our camp!

Thank you So Much for all your hard work, commitment, and dedication to the cause. You have helped so many, enriched the lives os so many, and guided so many through very difficult times. Kudos,

God Bless you Jo for all that you do

Wishing you health and happiness for the next 75!

Happy birthday to a class act. Congratulations!

I have had the privilege of hearing Jo speak a couple of times.  Her journey with Parkinson's was a long one with little or no support.  Instead of giving up, she delved into what she could do to help others.  Her commitment and passion is nothing short of a miracle.  We all are blessed to have her in our lives as a guiding light to what one can accomplish.  Thank you Jo.

Happy Birthday Jo. Thank you for all that you do for those with Parkinson's

Happiest of birthdays, Jo!  So lucky to know you and spread your mission through PDG Strong!

I've just met you, Jo. You are a wonder and exactly as others describe. Happiest birthday and may you have many more years of good health. May all the love and devotion you export for others be returned in spades! Birthday hugs to you and yours, 

Jo, I knew you would reach 60 some day.  Congratulations!!  What you have done with PRO is more worthy of any oscar, emmy , gold medal, etc.
