One of Joe’s passions is truly accounting, but, when forced to step away from his spreadsheets, he is involved with his church and is known to be quite a force on the Cohen soccer team. With two goals over four years (and one was even for the Cohen team!), Joe calls himself the heart and soul of the team: number 10 on the depth chart but number 1 in our hearts. Joe, his wife and their son live in Lyndhurst, Ohio.
