O'Shea honored at Maplebrook breakfast

AMENIA — John O’Shea, chairman of the Poughkeepsie-based insurance firm Marshall & Sterling, became the 14th recipient honored at Maplebrook School’s annual President’s Breakfast on June 8.

Honorees are chosen for their civic achievements and have included a variety of people ranging from local historian Ann Linden to Dutchess County Executive William Steinhaus.

O’Shea, in addition to his insurance business, has worked with a number of not-for-profit organizations and community groups, including the United Way and several medical groups such as Vassar Brothers Hospital, Health Quest and Mid-Hudson Health.

Donations by guests who attended the breakfast ceremony were put to a scholarship to be awarded to a graduating Maplebrook student this year.

Several guests made brief remarks, including Marshall & Sterling President Tim Dean.

“Our firm’s values mirror John O’Shea’s values,” he said, attributing much of the business’ success to the honoree. “If there’s somebody I could follow in the footsteps of, it would certainly be John.”

“This really is a great place and I’m very proud to be recognized by your school,” said O’Shea upon accepting the award. “It’s an honor to be named among the former honorees.”

O’Shea said he was very fortunate to find opportunities to help the community in a variety of ways over the years.

“I hope that for the foreseeable future I will continue to do the things I am doing,” he concluded with a smile.
