Joseph "Beppy" Sasso is an original member of the DiMeo crime family. He is described as an "ailing underboss" in the fictitious media reports surrounding the DiMeo crime family. It is unknown when Sasso became underboss; There is speculation that Junior Soprano promoted him when the latter became boss in 1999, but that is unlikely, seeing as how he is described as "ailing underboss." He was likely underboss for either Jackie Aprile from 1995 onward or for longtime boss Ercole 'Eckley' DiMeo prior to 1995. In 1999 he was indicted on federal racketeering charges along with Junior Soprano and Lawrence Barese. Sasso has the shortest on-screen time of any character answering the door of his house in a robe. He died in Season 3 episode, "Another Toothpick." He is described by Father Tintola as "78-years-old, devoted father, Supply Sergeant in the Army and saw action in the Pacific Theatre during WWII and was a devout Catholic. Father Tintola said during the funeral that Tintola visited him when he was in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy and described Sasso as "...frail and thin, his body wracked with pain..." Bobby Baccalieri flew up from Miami to attend his funeral which was also attended by Tony and Junior.
Not to be confused with Junior Crew Soldier Giuseppe "Beppy" Scerbo.
