Candlelight Vigil for Ryan Harryman

SJSU Interim President Susan Martin has emailed the following message to the campus community. This event is open to the public.

Dear students, faculty and staff,

I am writing to let you know about plans to honor the life and memory of SJSU student Ryan Harryman, who passed away Saturday night.

A senior anthropology major from Sunnyvale, Ryan collapsed during club water polo practice last Tuesday evening and never regained consciousness.

In close collaboration with his family, we have scheduled a candlelight vigil for this Friday, Oct. 23, beginning at 6 p.m. in front of the Smith/Carlos sculpture near Clark Hall. Students and others are invited to join in this informal celebration, during which participants will have the opportunity to share personal memories of Ryan.

We all stand with Ryan’s parents, siblings, extended family, teammates and friends during this very difficult time.

Sincerely,

Susan Martin
Interim President
