George (Joe) F. Cresswell

George F. Cresswell, affectionately known as “Joe” to our team, started with our company in February 2013 as a ConnectBooster salesperson and rapidly became an owner, advisor, colleague and friend. Everyone who knew Joe loved his spirit and his quick wit. In October 2017, Joe lost a battle with cancer and his presence is greatly missed by our team. Our annual scholarship in his name means his commitment to our industry and teaching others will not be forgotten and will be championed by younger generations to come.
