John Jojo retires from Mosaic Associates, Matthew Gaspary promoted to principal

Mosaic Associates has announced the retirement of longtime principal John Jojo, who worked with the architectural firm for 28 years. In addition, architect Matthew Gaspary has been promoted to principal.

“The news is bittersweet to those of us at Mosaic Associates as we wish John much happiness in retirement,” said Theresa Moroukian, principal and director of finance and human resources. “After a long and successful career he deserves the opportunity to relax, but we’ll miss his wisdom and his presence here at the firm.”

In his career at Mosaic, Jojo oversaw nearly $200 million in construction projects for Shenendehowa Central Schools alone. His current clients include the Troy City School District, Voorheesville Central School District, Greenwich Central School District, and Schoharie Central School District. Jojo developed his deep understanding of how buildings are put together as a kid spending time on job sites with his dad, who was a general contractor.

All of Gaspary’s professional career has been spent at Mosaic; he joined the firm during his last year as a student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute 24 years ago. Most recently he has worked on projects for the Saratoga Springs City School District, Cairo-Durham Central School District, and Glens Fall City School District. He was also a member of the Mosaic team that designed the Haas Center for Advanced Manufacturing Skills at Hudson Valley Community College, which opened in 2019.

As he moves into a more senior role, Gaspary said he is hoping to mentor and help develop Mosaic’s younger staff members and give them the tools they need to become good architects and strong leaders.
