Joe Voskerichian

JOE V as he is called by his many friends and admirers is a true tribute to Tampa. He came down when stationed in the Air Force at MacDill AFB. He met Annie Pupello, stayed and the rest is history.

The native of Buffalo New York was called “The Armenian Antelope” because of his speed. A great athlete who excelled in football and baseball, Joe set the standards when playing. A true gentleman both on and off the field.

Joe has accumulated so many awards during his time in Tampa, too many to name. He is a true mover and shaker, a man who has made many great things happen in Tampa.

Joe was not only a great ref and umpire, but was also an outstanding coach of youngsters.

Joe spent 11 years working with the Tampa Police Department, and later went to work for Nations Bank where he gave them a terrific presence on the community and soon was promoted to Director of Community Relations. Joe V also has been the Executive Director of the Gold Shield Foundation for several years,

He lives in Tampa with his wife Ann. They have 3 children and many grand children. He is still very active in his beloved community, and is now enshrined in “Tampa Bay Legends”.
