Rossi was found dead after hanging himself in his residence at Redstone Arsenal on July 31, 2016, two days before his scheduled promotion to lieutenant general to succeed David L. Mann as commander of United States Army Space and Missile Defense Command. He was the first American Army general to take his own life since record-keeping of suicides in the armed forces began in 2000.

In early April 2016, Major General Rossi was nominated for promotion to lieutenant general. The nomination was reported to the Senate Armed Services Committee on April 26, 2016 and confirmed on April 28.

He was interred at Fort Bliss National Cemetery on August 13, 2016. Several high-ranking military figures in addition to Rossi's family were in attendance, including Dennis L. Via, commanding general of the U.S. Army Materiel Command and Paul K. Hurley, Chief of Chaplains of the United States Army. Individuals who had worked with Rossi over the years paid tribute to their former superior and colleague, including former Fort Sill commander, retired Army general and close friend Lee Baxter, who praised Rossi as an "out front, very polished, professional leader" who "stepped up to be a true leader in the community". The Army also issued an official statement, commending Rossi as "a respected leader, valiant warrior and trusted friend who gave more than 33 years of service to this nation."

As the senior commander of Fort Sill, Rossi was responsible for the military education and readiness of the Army's primary institution for fires, or the tasks and systems that provide collective and coordinated use of Army indirect fires, air and missile defense. He relinquished command of the center to Major General Brian McKiernan on July 21, 2016.


Colonel Rossi assumed command of the 35th Air Defense Artillery Brigade on July 15, 2008 from Colonel Eugene D. Cox. As a brigadier general, Rossi commanded the 32nd Army Air and Missile Defense Command from 2011 to 2012, when he departed to become director of the Army Quadrennial Defense Review in Washington D.C. from 2012 to 2014, receiving a promotion to major general.


His principal staff assignments include serving as operations officer for the 94th Air Defense Artillery Brigade in Germany; chief of the U.S. Central Command Air and Missile Defense Division in Tampa, Florida; operations officer for the 32nd Army Air and Missile Defense Command in Fort Bliss, Texas; deputy commanding general and chief of staff of Fort Bliss, Texas; deputy commanding general (fires and effects), III Corps and Fort Hood; and director of the J33 branch of U.S. Forces - Iraq.
