Campus mourns passing of student

Friday, January 25, 2008

The University of Massachusetts announced the sudden death of student Jennifer Morganson early Wednesday morning via a campus-wide email. Morganson, 22, passed on Jan. 16 of a brain aneurysm. A senior undergraduate in Women’s Studies, Morganson was on track to graduate at the end of this year with honors.

Born in Boston, MA, Morganson originally attended Ithaca College before transferring to UMass Amherst. She was laid to rest in her hometown of Guilderland, NY, on Monday, Jan. 21.

“Jennifer Morganson was truly an amazing person. She was the type of person you felt you could become best friends with only moments after meeting her,”
said Ryan Benedict, a close friend of Morganson and recent UMass graduate. “I wholeheartedly believe that Jennifer was going to change the world. She will be missed.”

Morganson’s family asks that any memorial contributions be sent to:

Medical Ministry International
P.O. Box 1339
Allen, TX 75013
