Obituary: Joe Caggiano

Joe Caggiano

Joe Caggiano, a 23-year veteran of the federal contracting marketplace, died Jan. 14 at his home in Bethesda, Md., according to a friend and former co-worker.

He died from a massive heart attack, said Larry Allen, president of Allen Federal Business Partners. Caggiano and Allen worked together at The Washington Management Group before it was purchased by Deltek.

Caggiano, 48, was a principal at Reznick Government, a business advisory firm.  He is perhaps best known for turning around FedSources, where he was chief operating officer. He left FedSources when it was purchased by Deltek in April 2011.

He joined Reznick Government in October 2011. His aim was expanding the firm into the federal market. He had extensive experience in knowledge management, business performance consulting and customer relations within the federal market, according to colleagues at Reznick.

Reznick did not return calls for comment.

Before joining the private sector, Caggiano served in the U.S. Navy for eight years. 

He is survived by his wife, five children, and his father, Paul Caggiano, who has served as president of the Washington Management Group and the Coalition for Government Procurement.

I also have been out of touch for too many years but have fond memories of a great guy and classmate. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends - and he had many, many friends at Wootton.

Joe and I played football together at Wooton High School, and while we did not remain close afterwards, I always had the deepest respect for him! My condolances to Joe's friends and family at this difficult time.

Joe was an incredible guy who managed to touch the hearts and lives of all he touched in his all-too-brief life. Although I've been out of touch for too many years (since high school), Joe brightened my life and those of most of us in Wootton High School's class of 82. My heart goes out to his family.
