Episodes in which Eric Logan appears

IT Project Manager in Kodak's Worldwide Information Systems organization

Eric Logan has been actively involved in the community since his arrival to Rochester in 1973 as a student at Roberts Wesleyan College. Working as a volunteer "peer" counselor in local urban and suburban high schools while completing his undergraduate education, he saw the great potential of this community as an exciting place to live, work, and raise a family.

Eric has worked in the community in local media as a news reporter and has volunteered extensively at the community public broadcast facility, WXXI. Since 1981, he has enjoyed a rewarding career at Eastman Kodak Company, where he currently serves as an IT Project Manager in Kodak's Worldwide Information Systems organization.

Eric's community activities have included serving as past President of the Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery, member of the Board of the Susan B. Anthony House, and as a Mayoral appointee of the Rochester/Monroe County Freedom Trail Commission. Eric also serves as the current Chair of the WXXI Community Advisory Board.  

Eric and his wife Anne live in Rochester's South Wedge community where they are actively involved in neighborhood and community initiatives.  They are empty-nesters with a son and daughter and grandson. Eric is also active in his local church (New Hope Free Methodist Church) where he serves as a musician and worship leader.

During their "free time", you will find Eric and Anne enjoying a quiet round of golf on any of the local public golf courses.

Eric's personal story about battling colorectal cancer: Eric consulted his PCP in July 2001 when he noticed blood in the stool. Subsequent fecal occult blood tests were negative until a repeat test in October confirmed Eric's visual findings. A late November colonoscopy revealed a large mass approximately the size of an orange that had grown through the wall of the colon. Surgery to remove the mass confirmed that the cancer was classified as Stage 3C with the involvement of 1 lymph (sentinel) node with some cancerous cells at the margins of the surgery. Eric, and his wife Anne, agreed that the recommended procedure of adjuvant chemotherapy including radiation treatment was the best option. Eric remains in remission today and credits his survival to the love and support of his family, his church, and friends, skilled and knowledgeable physicians, and his employer's flexibility in allowing Eric to balance work and recovery.
