Who Was John Moresco, Law & Order SVU Dedication

Law and Order SVU season 14 - who was John Moresco

Tonight I tuned into the 14th season premiere of Law & Order: SVU way late and only saw the last 20 minutes of it but noted that the episode was dedicated to John Moresco.

I was wondering who he was and here’s what seems to be the information on John Moresco:

That he was a driver in the television industry, under the Theatrical Teamsters Local 817, in New York. He passed away in August of this year, 2012.

He is noted for having driven for projects such as 2010’s For Colored Girls & The Switch, 2009’s Precious, 2006’s Little Children & 1994’s Leon: The Professional. Having been in the industry for many years and only adding these credits under his name, I suspect he was a humble man.

With limited clues, this is the best information I can deduce on who the man was.

R.I.P. good sire.

Wow, I thought I was the only one who was curious about that dedication. I never got to see the originally aired episode, but was just catching up on Hulu.plus since I now watch the show faithfully, and I saw this dedication and I too took to the net to see who this special and loved person was, and I’m do glad I did!! thank you so much for taking the time and trouble of researching and sharing this info with us and in doing so, helping to remember such an amazing and humble soul, from the impression I got from the above info, and even if he wasn’t famous or well known, knowing he was well loved and remembered and that he was worthy of such a tribute, it really warms my heart because it goes to show people are still judged and appreciated by the content of thier character and it’s not just about fame, money and power. RIP John and I hope his family is finding thier way without him, it’s a shame this world lost such a good soul. I hope who miss him, even while they grieve, also celebrate his life and how remarkable he was and that they know that there are people out there who wish them well and think the world of him even though we never had the pleasure of meeting him. They say if you are remembered then you found the secret to immortality, and if that’s true then John will always be with us, because he truly is remembered and for all the right reasons.

Thank you both for the information. SVU has been a favourite of mine for years and I love the characters and the realism. Due to a work schedule I was unable to watch the episodes when they aired but I taped them and am catching up as I have time. This morning I watched the episode dedicated to John Moresco and came to my computer to find out who he was. I am very pleased to find the cast cared enough about a crew member to dedicate such a powerful episode to him. Again, thank you for the information.

Thanks to Bruce and Michelle for this information. In this dog-eat-dog world we live in, the REAL people tend to be cast aside or forgotten. I love this show and the idealism it portrays, i.e. that there really are trustworthy, unaffected REAL people out there who live their lives honestly, humbly and glorification free. Thanks again Bruce and Michelle. xx

Thank you very much for contributing this information about John.

John Moresco was the father of one of my closest friends growing up. He was a Teamster for many, many years. He was signed on to SVU from the pilot season and worked until he became ill, this past summer. He was a very humble man and the select credits given are only a few of many… there are truly too many to list. Every actor he drove loved him, he genuinely cared about every person in his life. His brother is Robert Moresco, producer of Crash and many other films. He is survived by his wife, two sons and a beautiful granddaughter. No one will ever forget him. Rest in peace, John… you always called me your angel and now you are mine.

I adore this show, I miss some of the characters that have left, but it is a big favorite, and thank you. I just saw that episode where they mentioned John Moresco. Evidently it isn’t anyone who is a regular, but RIP John, If you had anything at all to do with this show, then you are a winner. God bless

Glad to see this I always wonder who the “In Memory” person is and of course went and looked it up 🙂 Thanks for letting us know.

Bruce Simmons September 28, 2012 at 5:04 pm

I hear what you’re saying Michelle, but to be honest, there’s a lot to be considered and what they did do, is pay homage to someone they loved on the crew. I think it’s fine, because then there’s me and my investigative skills, if any info is to be had.

And to everyone, your welcome. I appreciate the ‘thanks’ and good thoughts.

Michelle September 28, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Thanks. Just watched the DVRed episode and was wondering who he was. Would have been nice if they provided more information about him.

Cathy September 28, 2012 at 11:10 am

Thank you for posting that info. I was wondering the same thing!

S Swanson September 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm

I also thank you for this post. I looked him up and saw the article about being a driver. I was confused and thought this can’t be him. I’m glad it was; what a nice tribute! 🙂

There is a screenwriter’ named Robert Moresco who was an actor for a prior SVU episode in ’93…. It is possible they are related??

Debra September 27, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Enjoyed last night’s episode. I wasn’t sure who this man was either. I did notice that the State’s Atty was a character that use to be on Criminal Minds. This is another good show my husband and I have been watching for years. Many times there are dedications to people that work behind the scenes, but I am always curious if its someone I know from a show.

Laura September 27, 2012 at 9:06 am

I was also wondering that. Thank you so much. Love the episode.

Jackson September 27, 2012 at 5:59 am

Great episode, thanks for the information.

Celida M. Lopez September 27, 2012 at 12:56 am

Bruce- thank you for posting this up as I too was curious to find out who “John Moresco was. If you find anything else out about him and his works, please do the honor and share it with us. Have a great night sir!!

Tammy September 27, 2012 at 12:03 am

I too was wondering. Thanks, again. If you find a photo please post.

Bruce Simmons September 26, 2012 at 11:48 pm

Your welcome Bryan. If I find more concrete/extensive information at a later date, I will add it. (I’d rather have a better confirmation than what I have now.)

Bryan September 26, 2012 at 11:38 pm
