Joseph F. Tieperman, Jr., a Rouse Co. financial officer who helped create Columbia in the 1960s, died January 11 at Frederick Memorial Hospital from complications from pneumonia. He was 78.

Joseph F. Tieperman was born in Baltimore and raised in Towson. He attended Immaculate Heart of Mary Grade School and Towson Catholic High School, and earned a bachelor’s degree from the old Baltimore Junior College, where he met his future wife, Leslie (Abbott) Tieperman, a school teacher.
He and his family were early residents of Columbia. In the late 60s they were among the first families to live in Longfellow.

Mr. Tieperman went on to work as a financial officer for WR Grace, Knott Development, Chateau Builders, Hearth and Home, and Emmitsburg Glass Company.

When diagnosed with cardiomyopathy in 1988, his wife received the 52nd heart transplant performed at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and was cared for by her husband and children until her death in 2008.
Mr. Tieperman was an avid sports fan and an original PSL ticket holder for the Baltimore Ravens.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered Monday January 20th, 10 a.m., at St. Louis Roman Catholic Church in Clarksville.

Mr. Tieperman is survived by two sons, Parker Tieperman of Columbia and Lance Tieperman of Essex; two daughters, Holly Sneeringer of Catonsville and Brooke Talbot of Columbia; a sister, Barbara Hogue, of Martinsburg, WVA., a brother, Richard Tieperman of Frederick, and ten grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in Mr. Tieperman's name may be directed to the Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland ( )

It was a blessing to celebrate Joseph's life with you at St. Louis. I did not know Joseph, but his wife Leslie and I were best friends at Seton High. She was a beautiful person in every way, and I loved her dearly. I went to Ocean City with her and her family in August 1960 and joined the Daughters of Charity in September. I saw Leslie at a teachers' meeting in '65, but we never met again. Because of my loved memory of her friendship I have kept Leslie and her family in my prayer all these years. Be sure, I will continue to keep you in prayer. If you visit Emmitsburg, please look me up. Go gently and peace of hearts!
