Kandler Honoree: Susan Del Pesco

Susan Del Pesco, Superior Court Judge and Advocate, dedicated 20 years to justice as a Superior Court Judge in Delaware. During her time on the Superior Court she advocated for better services for female inmates, including a separate level IV facility and options to keep incarcerated Moms with their newborns.

After leaving the bench, she also helped protect seniors by writing and helping enact a more robust power of attorney statute, and a statute to protect end of life medical choices. Most recently, Susan was a champion for the ERA in Delaware, and was an integral part of the team that achieved the amendment to the Delaware Constitution to protect equal rights.
