John C. Scully (USF School of Law Class ’91) was killed at the young age of 28 in the 101 California Street massacre on July 1, 1993.
Less than a year after their wedding in Honolulu John used his own body to shield his wife, Michelle Scully Hobus (USF School of Law Class ‘92), from the shooters gunfire.
John was not only a hero and an amazing husband. He also worked and played with passion. Work, fun, family and friends were all important to him. He especially enjoyed sports, the ocean and outdoors.
He was a beautiful example of what it means to be a good person and a good lawyer.
That is why we still remember, love, honor and miss him today.
Shortly after John’s tragic death, a group of John’s USF School of Law classmates established the John Scully Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Each year since it’s inception in 1994, a law student who exudes John’s academic excellence and love for sports and the outdoors is awarded the Scholarship.
In memory of the 25th anniversary of John’s passing, the Scholarship we seek to raise an additional $25,000 to $50,000 for the Scholarship to enable us to help more USF law students as tuition and other education costs continue to escalate.
This year will mark 25 years since we lost John.
Given John's fun, easy-going spirit and love for life, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate his memory, his loyalty, and the work-life balance he stood for then by having a Hawaiian themed party in his honor.
Join us as we connect, celebrate life, and raise funds for the John Scully Memorial Scholarship.
