RE:         Appointment of John B. DeLuca as Deputy Commissioner

            I am proud to announce the selection of John B. DeLuca as Deputy Commissioner. John is currently the Division Director of the Division of Services for the Blind at the Department of Health and Human Services. He will officially begin his new duties at the Industrial Commission on December 1, 2003.

            John has been an appeals referee and Staff Attorney at the Employment Security Commission and Assistant Director of Legal Affairs and later Chief of the Standards Branch for the Department of Human Resources.

            John graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Duke University and earned his law degree from Stanford University Law School. He also attended Oxford University in England.

            He is a member of the American Blind Lawyers’ Association and a member of the Executive Committee of the National Council of State Agencies for the Blind.

            John’s understanding and commitment to individuals with physical impairments coupled with his work experience and outstanding academic background will make him a great deputy.
