Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Gemma B. Allen of the family law firm Allen & Glassman received Loyola University Chicago’s 2018 Felice Award from the school’s John Felice Rome Center at Loyola’s annual Founders’ Dinner. Named after the Rome Center’s founding director, the award is among the highest honors given by the university.

Allen received her bachelor’s degree magna cum laude in 1966 from Loyola and was a student at the Rome Center. Allen’s “commitment to the field of family law and her active participation on multiple councils and boards” were among the reasons noted by University President Jo Ann Rooney in her letter informing Allen of the award.

Allen notes that “her family heart and roots are with Loyola,” where her father, Dr. Frank Cassaretto, was a renowned professor. She has served on the Rome Center’s Alumni Board almost since its inception, and currently serves on the Center’s Director’s Council.
