Athletics Staff Member Kelly Seubert Remembered
Kelly C. Seubert, administrative assistant to Syracuse Men’s Basketball Head Coach Jim Boeheim, died Aug. 18, surrounded by her family.
She was born in Buffalo and moved to the Syracuse area in 1966. Seubert earned her associate degree in business from Bryant and Stratton College and worked for Syracuse University for 13 years.
Seubert was known for her devotion to her husband and children and extended family and friends. She loved cooking and taking care of her second family, the coaches and players of the men’s basketball team.
Boeheim told the Syracuse Post-Standard that Seubert was the “heart and soul of our basketball program.”
“She ran everything here,” Boeheim said. “From the players, to the camps to the coaches and the administrators. She touched everybody in such a positive way.”
Seubert is survived by her husband, Stephen; children, John, Michael, Christopher and James LaValle, Danielle (Luke) Suppa and Alexis Seubert; siblings, Cynthia Cunningham, Patti-Ann (Anton) Simon, Timothy Cunningham, Karen (Allen) Myers and James (Melodie) Cunningham; and several nieces and nephews.
