Remembering Doc Oc

Since his death in 2005, the Hudson Relays have been run in memory of Dr. Ignacio Ocasio. Dr. Ocasio was a chemistry professor who mostly taught first-year students but was loved by all students— past and present.

Doc Oc's passion for student life led him to be a coach for the first-year team and a strong supporter of the Relays. Now when the race is run, all runners and volunteers wear shirts that say "Thank You, Doc" in celebration of his passion for student life— both in and out of the classroom.
