Music Icon Quincy Jones
Named by Time
Magazine as one of
the most influential
jazz musicians of the
20th century, Quincy
Jones has received 27
Grammy Awards and 79
nominations.
He produced the
arrangement “Fly Me to
the Moon” and Michael
Jackson’s multiplatinum albums “Off
the Wall,” “Bad,” and
“Thriller.” From “Roots”
to “The Color Purple,”
his work has garnered an Emmy Award and 7 Oscar
nominations.
Quincy is equally famous for giving back. In 2010, he
co-produced a new version of his iconic “We Are the
World” to raise funds for Haiti relief.
We are humbled and honored to have Music Icon
Quincy Jones as the Global Down Syndrome
Foundation’s International Spokesperson.

Clarissa Capuano
2015 Ambassador
Hi there! My name is Clarissa Joann Capuano. I am seven years old and live with my Mom & Dad. I have two older brothers
Alec & Jesse who are both in college. I love when they are home! I’ll be in college one day too but more about my future later on.
When I was born, I surprised everyone with an extra chromosome. Despite the somber tone at the hospital, I left there
happy and healthy, ready to start my great life. There have been a few challenges along the way such as my heart surgery at
four months (I had four holes in my heart…what the heck?). After the surgery I was out of
the hospital in just six days. As my Dad often says, I’m tough! There have been other
challenges too, but who doesn’t have something or the other?
Since then I’ve been on the go and I’m really enjoying life! I love to
sing, dance, ride horses, swim, hike and play dress up. Mom helps
me a lot with dress up. I think she likes it almost as much as I do. I
also like piano (but I don’t love it – please don’t tell my parents).
Mom keeps me very active which I enjoy, um, most days. It’s
important to stay active because I have low muscle tone so
it’s harder for me to stay fit. I think someday I want to try
modeling. I love being on the catwalk and in the spotlight.
This year I started 2nd grade. I love my school and my
teachers. I ride the regular school bus and have classes
with all of my typical developing peers. I have lots of
friends at school! And I’m getting smarter and smarter
every day. My favorite class is PE where I can go outside
and play, run and play basketball.
My future is bright because of all the love I get,
my hard work, and the Global Down Syndrome
Foundation – Global is working hard to make a better
life for me. Did you know an estimated 50% of people
with Down syndrome will get Alzheimer’s by the
time they are in their 40s? That seems really
unfair and scary. With your help, I know the
Global Down Syndrome Foundation and all
their great scientists at the Crnic Institute
will figure this out.
My name is Clarissa…. and this is my
wonderful life… so far….
