Condolence & Memory Journal

I worked for Mark at General Electric Capital. He was my Manager and I have to say I have never had a better Manager throughout my career. Mark was willing to supervise but also willing to listen. Mark was a lot of fun to work for and even more to be around. I will always be amazed of his weight lifting abilities in our gym! He will be missed.

I just opened my ND Magazine and saw the notice about Mark. I have not seen him for many years but remember many adventures there. He truly was larger than life. My deepest sympathies and prayers for his family

My deepest and most sincere condolences to the Roesler Family. I had the honor to work with Mark for a short time when he came to Ethic. He was smart, hard working but above all else he was a genuinely great person who cared about people, especially his family that he always raved about. I remember the stories from his 2018 trip to Ireland very well. What a trip that must have been. My prayers are with the Roesler family during this difficult time.

Mark was a true leader.
Committed to his responsibility & proud of his associates.
He never took anyone or anything for granted.

Always up to a request & willing to support.
My direct time with Mark was short, however impactful.
Thanks for your direction and insight!

My deepest condolences for your loss. Mark was my friend and classmate at Notre Dame and Dillon Hall. We were teammates our intra hall "touch" football dream team and some of my best college memories were the Thursday night gatherings at his house on 601 Corby Street. He was on our five man crew that toured Europe for several weeks immediately after graduating from ND. He and I partnered for about 1,000 hands of Euchre during that trip of which we probably won 990 of them due to his sharp mind. And nothing since has ever quite lived up to the nights in Munich with Mark. I had the good fortune to live in Stamford the year after graduation when Mark was there with GE Capital. I lost touch with him after I moved back to Michigan for no good reason, but that was my loss. He was a "big" man in the finest sense of the word and truly had a heart of gold. My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. He will be dearly missed.

Jennette and family,
Our deepest sympathies for the devastating loss of Mark. There aren't adequate words to express what his loss must mean to you all. We are forever grateful for the kindness & inclusion he showed to our Mom the many years she lived with Mari and Charlie. May the great memories you have bring you the laugh or smile needed most in the coming days, weeks , and months ahead.

Mark, we miss you. Thank you for all of your help and guidance. You and your family will forever be in our prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Mark at the Bank. He was so talented yet so modest, and it was clear how dedicated he was to helping people through these recent challenging months of financial crisis. I orchestrated a photo shoot of senior management, and when I asked Mark if he could let me know which photo in his gallery was his favorite, he told me that he wanted his wife to make the final decision. His family was always top of mind. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sheila, although I never met Mark I can picture him through your eye's and your love for him. I too lost both of my brothers at young ages. I pray for you and your family. And remember you will always, always have beautiful memories.

I dont know where to start, Mark was always a good friend and someone you could tell a good joke to and he would add to it to make it funnier. The good times we all had at Adams Lk go beyond words Mark we all will miss your wit and your way of making our day with your kind smile It is so sad to see someone with so much life be taken from us so soon But God has a plan for all of us See you at the pearly gates some day and we can catch up on old times God bless you and your family Thanks for the memorijes Jim Dodane
