Makarand Joshi

With great sadness and heavy hearts, Makarand’s family shares that he passed away on July 6, 2023. He will be remembered for his incredible zest for life, spirited personality, and love and compassion for family and friends. Says his widow, Shilpa, “He always said to me Kellogg changed his life. He learned so much and made wonderful friends and great connections.” Makarand ran his first marathon with Kellogg classmates in Chicago in 2010 and came back 11 years later to run it again.  He always loved Northwestern’s signature purple, Shilpa says, adding that “his career soared to new heights thanks to his Kellogg degree and learnings and network.” Makarand is also survived by his sons, Shardul and Manas; his mother, Anupama; and his brother, Abhijeet.
