I can't.

If you handle() and attempt to re-throw the same exception, you will get:

     unreported exception Throwable; must be caught or declared to be thrown

I agree that whenComplete() is meant to act as a finally block (which 
removes the need to do this funky casting). What I don't like is that 
join() returns without waiting for the result of whenComplete(). If the 
case of a real try-finally block, the code after the block does not 
execute after finally completes. I am trying to implement the same 
behavior here.

What should I be doing instead?
