Mitch Sacco

The population of New Braunfels in 1960 was a little over 15,000 when 25-year-old Mitch Sacco moved here with his family. While New Braunfels added a new, enthusiastic young dentist, our community absolutely gained so very much more: a warm and generous man whose volunteer contributions to New Braunfels has earned him Living Legend status from the New Braunfels Foundation Trust. 

Mitchell James Sacco, Jr., was born in Houston in 1934 where his parents owned a family grocery store, Sacco Brothers Food Market. After graduating from St. Thomas High School and Loyola University in New Orleans, Mitch married Jean Eschenburg in 1955 and enrolled in the University of Texas Dental School in Houston.
