“If you are a Californian who loves Italian food, there is a good chance Dino Cortopassi fed you at some point in your life. If you are a Californian who loves the Delta, its wildlife, and its agriculture, there is a good chance that Dino Cortopassi’s initiatives and conservation efforts have touched your life.

The Delta has lost an icon: a self-made business leader, who supported local education efforts for the next generation, nonprofits, environmental groups, and cultural endeavors with as much care as he did his business activities. 

Dino Cortopassi had great intellect with an equal measure of heart and generosity. He loved the Delta and our region’s people. His care for the world was abundant in his actions. He will be missed by Restore the Delta’s staff, board, and members.”
– Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director, Restore the Delta
