ROSEMARIE K. WITTER
Rosemarie K. Witter was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and grew up in New York City. She earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and aspired to study for a law degree. In 2002, her life was cut short by Lupus before she even got a chance to pursue her life's dream. Affectionately known as Rosie, she was a loving and caring individual, and a humanitarian who was passionate about the causes in which she believed.
Had she lived, Rosemarie would have dedicated her life to finding a cure for Lupus and supporting research to identify new therapies. Her family and friends are committed to carrying the torch, and are honored to continue her legacy.
