In Memoriam: James J. Cereghino

20 January, 2023

James J. Cereghino, MD, 85, died on 1 December 2022, in Portland, Oregon, USA, of cardiac failure.

Dr. Cereghino was an active member of a number professional and lay organizations, including the International League Against Epilepsy. He was also past president of the American Epilepsy Society.

One of the most consequential contributions by Dr. Cereghino was his service as Editor-in-chief of Epilepsia, from 1986 to 1994. Epilepsia is the most widely respected monthly journal on basic and clinical science in the field of epilepsy; he performed most admirably in this difficult role.

Dr. Cereghino will be missed by his national and international colleagues, his friends, and his patients.
