Joseph Michael Gibson Obituary
Gibson, Joseph Michael
died on December 30, 2009 after being struck by a car while jogging with his wife. He was 38 years old and is survived by his wife Jennifer, parents Edward and Julie Gibson, and his siblings Jannet, John, and Julie. Dr. Gibson, an Emergency Physician with Emergency Professional Services, P.C., received his undergraduate degree from James Madison University in Virginia, earned his M.D. from Eastern Virginia Medical School, served three years as a Dive Medical Officer in the U.S. Navy and trained in Emergency Medicine at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center in the Bronx, NY. Joe's intelligence, humor, compassion, drive, and humility made him an exceptional physician, husband, son, brother, and friend. Our world is a far better place because of his presence. Per his wishes, Joe's generosity continued after his death as his organs were donated, giving the gift of life to four different individuals. In lieu of flowers, Joe's family requests that donations be made to a new 501(c)(3) charitable foundation that is being created in his honor. Please make donations to: "Jean West c/o The Joe Gibson Memorial Fund," 520 South Roosevelt #1001, Tempe, AZ 85281. This organization will be devoted to supporting emergency medicine, organ donation, and other causes that Joe was passionate about.
