On Friday, May 6, 2022, Frank Moore-Sasso, loving husband, father, and brother, passed away at the age of 51.

Frank was born on November 19, 1970, in Chicago, Illinois. He received his master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the Illinois School for Professional Psychology in 2015 and went on to become a licensed psychotherapist and board-certified substance abuse counselor. His private practice focused on helping people with various life challenges, including anxiety.

Frank loved spending time with his daughter and being with family. A gym enthusiast, he was a former bodybuilder and competed in the Illinois State Bodybuilding competition. He was a compassionate man with a big heart.

Frank is survived by his wife Jennifer, his daughter Catalina, his brothers John, Joseph, and Anthony, several nieces, and nephews. 

A celebration of his life will be held at a later date with friends and family. 

Arrangements entrusted to Chicagoland Cremation options of Schiller Park, IL.


I am stunned and heartbroken to learn of Frank\'s passing. I will never forget him. A man of intelligence, integrity and compassion. I wish I had been better about keeping touch after I moved away. He will be greatly missed.

I met Frank when we worked a summer job together and immediately made a friend for life. He was someone I looked up to even though I was 3 years older. He was amazing and accomplished so much. I miss him dearly.

Frank stepped into my life a year or so ago at CrossFit Factorial. In a small world I have known his brother John for almost 10 years! It was easy to identify the relationship:). I am blessed to have had the opportunity to know Frank, he had a way of always making you feel better about yourself. I know he is resting in the heavens above, Rest In Peace Frank,

We have known Frank for around twenty year, first as our niece Jenny's boyfriend, then as Jenny's husband and Catalina's father.

Frank was a deeply sensitive and caring individual. There are many examples of how he extended himself to others with the intent of making a meaningful difference in their lives. One story that comes to mind involved a job he had years ago as a counselor for homeless people and those living at the margins. Frank would spent time with these people and help guide them to more stable lives.The organization he worked for had a policy that did not allow gift giving to clients. One of Frank's cases was a gentleman who was living in a one room apartment and didn't have a way to properly store fresh food. Frank came up with a very creative work around: he bought a mini-fridge and left it at the man's apartment without anyone knowing. When this fellow told Frank about the little fridge that miraculously appeared at his home Frank just smiled and said something like, "How about that!" The man never had a clue as to where the gift came from and Frank didn't have to answer to his supervisor for a minor policy violation that was in reality a profound act of kindness. Frank was the happiest when he extended himself to others. There are many other stories like this one; anyone who knew Frank well could tell you at least one or two.

Here are some good memories: Frank showing up as The Man in the Yellow Hat with little Catalina playing the roll of Curious George on Halloween. Hiking El Yunque rain forest and getting drenched, drying out and getting drenched again ,only to find on the way back down the mountain a railed walkway that we had crossed earlier was suddenly covered with flowing water, Frank went first! Family gatherings where Frank would bring the most enormous pizzas we had ever seen...they were delicious too!

We are heartbroken, but as a family strong in the knowledge that Frank Sasso lived, trying his best to do good.

Peace be with you Frank Moore Sasso. We miss you and hold your memory deep in our hearts.
