Re:      Benjamin J. Mohla

It is with great sadness that we inform the University community that Benjamin Mohla from Wakefield, MA, a senior in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, passed away Saturday afternoon, November 23, 2013 due to an automobile accident in Randolph, VT.  

We extend our deepest condolences to Ben’s family. Our sincere thoughts of care and sympathy are also extended to Ben’s friends and to faculty and staff who were close to him. Ben was majoring in Environmental Sciences and was a Production Assistant for Conference and Events Services. He was also an active leader in the “Living Place Design Competition,” a collaboration between the Greenhouse Residential Learning Community Program and the Rubenstein School.

Information about campus and/or family services will follow as it becomes available.

As is the case when any member of our community passes away, we are bound to feel a profound sense of loss, and reactions are felt in a variety of ways. If you or someone you know is in need of additional support please do not hesitate to contact UVM’s Counseling and Psychiatry Services at (802) 656-3340 (for students) or the Wellness Corporation at 1-800-361-5527 (for employee assistance).
