A graduate of St Francis College and Stoner Graduate School of Banking, Rutgers University, Casalino began his banking career after his discharge from the U.S. Army.

After leaving Chase in 1984, Casalino served as Vice President of Human Resources for Crocker Bank and then, beginning in 1995, as Director of Human Resources for Institutional Investors. He retired in 2016.
A lifelong NY Mets fan, Casalino has his name on a brick at CitiField. He celebrated his 80th birthday late last summer with his sons-in-law by attending a subway series game at CitiField with the Chase Alumni Association.
In addition to his wife of 51 years, Casalino is survived by two daughters and their husbands, and three grandchildren.
