Remembrances may be made to




The Savannah Airport Commission regrets the passing of one of our all time superstars - Arlene Cesaroni. Arlene started her career with the Airport Commission on April 26, 1982. She was an excellent administrator and played a key role in developing and renewing many leases and contracts working along side the venerable James B (Jimmy) Blackburn, Patrick Graham and Daniel J Coe. Much of her work lives on today. Arlene loved the airport and participated in its significant growth throughout her 21 year long career which ended when she retired on May 31, 2003. The Commission is fortunate to have had great employees over the years and Arlene was among the best. She may be gone now but her impact on this airport will live on.
