John Breen, along his colleagues Evan Hill and Hank Pierson, transformed me in the early 1970s from meandering English major into a larval journalist. With his guidance, I acquired a career path. Thirty five years later, whatever good I've achieved in this profession is due to the lessons remembered from classes with him and his colleagues. Whatever errors I've made are my fault because I strayed from their advice and standards.
Thank you Prof. Breen.
I'm sure I am just one of hundreds you taught who have similar views of your positive impact on their lives.

To the family: I remember Mr. Breen from when I was a student at UConn in the 1970's. I took a journalism course which he taught. He was a good professor and a good man. May God bless you all and may he rest in peace.

John was probably the best and most influential teacher I had, and he remained a friend for life. I am deeply saddened. Larry Rifkin, Jerusalem
