A native of Huber Heights, Ohio, J.J. DeBrosse graduated from Butler University in 1995 after being heavily involved in multi aspects of college life. The 1995 Outstanding Marketing Student of the Lacy School of Business, J.J.’s professional career would start with an internship with the Indiana Pacers that would lead to his first full time position, becoming the Coordinator of Athletic Promotions at Purdue University in the fall of 1995. Less than two years later he was back with the Bulldogs as the first ever Athletic Ticket Sales Manager. He would become the third Director of Sports Marketing in school history in 2002. DeBrosse stepped out of athletics in the summer of 2004 to become the Division Director at Office Team, a division of Robert Half International. It was during his time with Office Team that JJ and his wife Emily lost their first child, Catherine, to SIDS. This event would lead JJ to walk away from the staffing industry and start his fundraiser Count It! For Cat. After a quick stint as a substitute teacher, JJ re-entered the business world as the Corporate and Athletic Sales Manager for the Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown. A ten year run with the hotel saw him become a leader not only on the sales board but also amongst his peers. After ten years he was promoted to a Regional Director of Sales position with the General Hotels Corporation, the management company of the Crowne Plaza. However, the draw to “come home” was too much and in November of 2017, DeBrosse returned to Butler as the Director of Graduate and Professional Recruitment for the Lacy School of Business. Happy to be back at his Alma Mater, his passions are for all things Butler Athletics, family and his fundraiser, Count It! For Cat, which raises money for a scholarship that goes to a female student athlete at Butler University.
