In Memory of Rob O'Rourke
Ag One, the Jordan College and Fresno State lost a dear friend and alumnus, Mr. Rob O'Rourke on July 12, 2018.
Rob graduated from Fresno State in 1988 and spent nearly 40 years working in procurement, inspection, and sales and marketing of all major produce categories. He and his brother, current Ag One Director John O'Rourke ('93), started RJO Produce Marketing in 1993, where he most recently served as vice president of business development. With a reputation for being forward-thinking and innovative, Rob was well known throughout the produce and retail industries.
He was passionately involved with and supported Catholic Charities, Boys Scouts of America, Knights of Columbus, Fresno State, San Joaquin Country Club and served on the membership committee for the Produce Marketing Association.
He is survived by his wife, Monica; children Katie, Megan, Ryan and Kevin; parents Ron and Kathi; brothers, Rick, Michael and John; and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts and cousins.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers, remembrances may be sent to the Ag One Foundation to establish an RJO scholarship in Rob’s name (see below), or to Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Fresno, 149 N. Fulton Street, Fresno, CA 93701.
