Steve Vassallo will be writing for on a variety of subjects.
Click on his fascinating post about former Ole Miss basketball great Johnny Neuman here.
Vasallo is a certified economic and community developer and is also a realtor with Premier Properties of Oxford. Steve graduated from Ole Miss and his lifelong dream has been to live in Oxford full-time.
“I am now living my dream daily as is my wife Rosie, who works with the Oxford Chamber of Commerce,” Steve said.
Steve and Rosie resided in Madison for 15 years prior to their Oxford move. Steve was the economic development director for Madison County and later served as the economic advisor for the City of Madison. One of his greatest success stories there was the recruitment of a satellite campus of Tulane University. Rosie was Director of the Madison City Chamber. She is an alum of TCU.
The Vassallos are passionate about Ole Miss sports. Steve was the basketball announcer for WCBH in the late 60’s and served as President of the Madison County Rebel Club. The couple also has an equally strong passion about canines and has worked tirelessly through the years supporting campaigns to adopt homeless pets.
