The Battle Begins Saturday, September 23, 2023 at 6:00 PM
Tracey McCutchen Rossi
Senior Vice President, Marsh & McLennan of Florida
Tracey is a native Floridian who was born in Miami and moved to Boca Raton at the age of one. She attended Addision Mizner Elementary, Boca Raton Christian/Boca Middle and was part of the first four-year graduating class of Spanish River High School in 1987. After graduating, she headed to Clemson University and became a Tiger! If you know Tracey or have seen her around town, she is almost always wearing a splash of orange, especially during football season.
She decided at an early age that she wanted to follow her late father, Bill McCutchen, into the insurance business. Upon graduation from Clemson University with a Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Tracey joined the Business Insurance division of an international broker located in Boca Raton. Her drive for growth in this industry allowed for several opportunities at national brokers over the years before joining Marsh & McLennan, one of the top insurance brokers. Tracey manages and advises on the insurance programs for clients all across Florida and other parts of the U.S. Her expertise is in the Real Estate & Hospitality space, along with other industries that have large property concentrations in the coastal areas of the country. Her knowledge in these areas of specialization, gives her clients the ability to be well prepared in overall risk management and forecasting within their market space.
Tracey is very proud of her successful career, but nothing makes her smile like talking about her family. She married her husband John in 1996 and together they have two beautiful children John (J.T.,23) and Rachel (20). They live in their home they built together with their two dogs and are now enjoying being “empty nesters”. John & Tracey consider themselves lucky for J.T. to be offered a job, after graduating FSU, at a private wealth management firm here in Boca so they have him back local. Rachel is living her best life in Key West and they are not sure they will be able to coax her out anytime soon.
Giving back to the community is very important to Tracey and when she came back home after Clemson, she immediately looked into many opportunities. She loved children and reached out to the Big Brother/Big Sister program. She was matched with a 7 year-old girl and began what has become a lifelong friendship. Her “little sister” was a bridesmaid in Tracey & John’s wedding and they still connect 25+ years later. Tracey joined the Junior League of Boca Raton in 1997. That was such an important part of her reconnecting back to Boca Raton. Living in Boca your whole life doesn’t mean you know everyone after college graduation. Being a part of the Junior League and getting to know and work alongside such dynamic, smart, compassionate women was a blessing to Tracey.
The George Snow Scholarship Fund gives kids so many opportunities that may not have been available to them without this organization. Accepting the offer to be a dancer in the “2022 Boca Ballroom Battle” is a way for Tracey to go “All In” and continue to give back to her hometown.
