I met Mario last summer and he is a wonderful man. Thank you for this article. It is very inspiring and I am glad to know him a little bit more. Congratulations to both Mario, Laura, and the rest of their family.

I met Mario years ago, haven’t seen him for some time. He was always a pleasure to work with, it’s great to read about his inspiring story. Must be very proud of his daughters.
I met Mario while working the front desk at Dixon and am always thrilled to see him come in! He is such a kind and warm person, not to mention inspirational. Plus, he’s so helpful and patient with my terrible Spanish! It has truly been a blessing getting to know him!

Dear Life@OSU Folks:
I really enjoyed reading Dr. Magaña’s story. He is an inspiration to us all in Oregon and at OSU. Please keep bringing us interviews about the members of our OSU community. Sincerely, L. Robelo
