Dr. James C. Alex, a member of the Board of Trustees of Hellenic College Holy Cross, recently died tragically. He was a Trustee for over fourteen years and a member of the Executive Committee and chair of the Institutional Advancement Committee.
He was a beloved son, brother, uncle and godfather. A devout Orthodox Christian, he was an accomplished physician and an eminent facial reconstructive surgeon. He was a native of Boston who was a graduate of Dartmouth College and Dartmouth Medical School.
Dr. Alex opened the Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery, his own practice in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, in 2006, following almost twenty years of top-flight accomplishments in research, medical education and surgical practice. He also served his country as a Major in the Medical Corps of the U. S. Air Force Reserves.
He was a kind and gracious man who gave generously of his talents and time. He was a good friend of the Hellenic College Holy Cross community who significantly advanced the mission of HCHC through his creative thinking and exemplary generosity. His presence will be sorely missed. His funeral was conducted from the Holy Cross Chapel. May his memory be eternal.
