Dave Cesario — You Will Be Missed

The reverse mortgage industry has lost a great advocate for the product, but more importantly a great friend to many people — including the team here at RMD.

Dave Cesario, 49, passed away on Tuesday at his home surrounded by his family after battling cancer.

Over the years he made his way to the reverse mortgage business and served as the VP of 1st Reverse Financial Services, Regional Sales Director at MetLife, and most recently as the national sales manager for MSI Reverse.


I was fortunate enough to have Dave join me about a month ago at a Cubs game in Chicago, where he proudly wore his White Sox gear and hat with a huge grin, making no mistake his distaste for the “lovable losers” on the North Side. If you knew Dave this wouldn’t have surprised you, if not, I hope it provides a little insight into his great sense of humor and the friend he was to so many people.

Always one to bend over backwards and do what he could to support the people around him, I’ve been lucky enough to not only call Dave a client for as long as RMD has been around, but a friend. We will miss you, Dave.

If you would like to attend the Funeral Guide and Services, they will be held Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 9:15 a.m. from the Fred C. Dames Funeral Home in Joliet, Ill. For more information and details about the services, click here.

  • David was one of the finest gentleman I have met in this industry. He was a big man, with a big smile, and and even bigger heart. He loved working with seniors and was respected as one that would always treat the borrower like his own grandmother. I am saddened by his passing, but I am so grateful for all he did for the reverse mortgage market.

  • My heartbreaks as I read this news. Dave was a fine man and I loved him dearly. I loved his sense of humor and his willingness to provide sound advice. Rest in peace dear friend.
