Dr. Daniel and Christine Chasse
1986 Davenport Campus
I come from a "chiropractic" family, with my father, Dr. Marc Chasse, having started the tradition by graduating from Palmer in 1962. He returned to Maine and started his practice in Fort Kent, which I eventually joined in 1990. I also have 2 uncles and 2 brothers who all graduated from Palmer.
I graduated in 1986 and so this year marks my 25th in practice. Hard to believe!
A few years ago, my wife, Christine, and I began to realize that our 2 children (Alex, 17, and Erin, 14) were beginning to grow up and that we needed to put together an estate plan. We found out that a simple will was insufficient. In consultation with our attorney, he asked us certain questions that made us consider what, other than our family, was important to us and what kind of legacy we'd like to leave. In addition to our church, we chose to include both our alma maters in our estate plan. The University of Maine Fort Kent from which Chris graduated with a teaching degree, and Palmer College of Chiropractic were natural choices.
My entire family owes a debt of gratitude to Palmer for providing us not only with a solid chiropractic foundation but for also instilling in us a certain pride that we were not only chiropractors, but Palmer chiropractors! We continue to feel that way to this day. I encourage all Palmer alumni, in setting up their estate plans, to look at their current circumstances and consider where they would be without a Palmer education. In doing so, we discovered that it was important to us to do our little part to help ensure that chiropractic continues to thrive and grow by including Palmer in our estate plan.
