The Jack G. Copeland, MD Endowed Chair of Cardiothoracic Surgery

Jack G. Copeland, MD

Tony Marnell, Sr., a cardiac transplant recipient who enjoyed many years of extended life, felt indebted to the heart surgeon who had made that possible: Dr. Jack G. Copeland. Through a provision in his estate, Mr. Marnell provided the initial funding of this endowment, which was quickly matched by other grateful patients and admirers honoring the contributions of this world-renowned surgeon.
