  It is my joy to find
At every turning of the road
The strong arm of a comrad kind
To help me onward with my load;

Michael “Juice” Congiusta joined Alpha Zeta in the fall of 2009 as part of the Xi Class.  A hardworking brother known for working at Best Buy, Mike was an exceptional brother who loved driving pledges to Installment Ritual 1 and being on New Member Committee. An Environmental and Business Economics major, Mike could be seen hanging out at the Cook Campus Center sporting his Yankees letters, never without his Blackberry in hand. An avid supporter of Dance Marathon, Mike spent countless hours supporting the Alpha Zeta dancers with homemade ziti and his exuberant smile.

Diagnosed with leukemia at 14, Mike beat cancer once but relapsed in the fall of 2010. Fearlessly undergoing chemotherapy, while continuing a full course load, Mike was an inspiration to us all. After a long, hard fought battle, Michael Jay Congiusta passed away on March 10, 2011 but not without leaving his mark on the brotherhood of Alpha Zeta

And since I have no gold to give,
'Tis love alone must make amends,
My only prayer is while I live—
God make me worthy of my friends.
