Ingrassia directed coverage that was part of the Journal's Pulitzer Prize-winning entry for explanatory journalism in 2003 for reporting on corporate scandals, and for its Pulitzer-winning entry for breaking news reporting in 2002 for Sept. 11 coverage. He joined the Journal in 1978 as a reporter in the paper’s Chicago bureau.
