Joshua Taggart Miller ’95

Published in Jan. 26, 2006, issue

Josh, an All-American player and co-captain of Princeton's varsity lacrosse team, died June 16, 2005, after a struggle with depression.

At Princeton, Josh was a history major and a member of Cap and Gown Club. After graduation, he moved to New York City and for five years was an investment analyst for Credit Suisse First Boston.

During this period, he helped guide Hofstra University to the NCAA lacrosse tournament in 1966.

In 2000, while working as an investment analyst at Vista Equity Partners in San Francisco, he helped fund Lacrosse For LIFE, a nonprofit lacrosse program dedicated to the betterment of the lives of inner-city youth through lacrosse and education.

Josh was tireless in his support of Princeton lacrosse as well, and worked to positively affect many young people's lives at numerous lacrosse camps at Princeton and on the West Coast.

Friends and classmates of Josh held a charity event Oct. 20 in New York to honor him. The event celebrated Josh's life and raised money for Lacrosse for LIFE.
