John R. Tusson *47

Published in Sept. 11, 1996, issue

John R. Tusson was found dead in his home, in the Belle Chasse section of New Orleans, La., June 30, 1995. He was 74. He had been stabbed to death. To our knowledge no suspect has ever been named. His home had been the object of two previous episodes attributed to possible vandalism. He earned a master's in chemical engineering at Princeton. He was an inventor, a computer program specialist who worked on design of the Prodigal on-line system, an entrepreneur in several personal businesses, and a former candidate for the presidency of Plaquemin Parish, La. He is survived by three offspring. His wife predeceased him. To them and their families we express profound sadness in his tragic death.

While recently searching for information concerning old friends and acquaintances, I "Googled" the name "John Tusson" and was shocked when this page was all that was presented. Could this John Tusson be the person I knew back in the mid-1950s in New Orleans who was living on St. Charles Avenue in a block of flats named either Mayflower Apts. or possibly Pontchartrain Apts.? I recall that the two buildings were in the same area. Also, the person I knew was associated with a company, which if my memory is correct, was called "Chem Oil." At the time, John was unmarried but I vaguely remember him becoming engaged. I would appreciate any information anyone may be able to provide concerning this subject, and apologize for any intrusion I may have incurred.
