Re: Nicolas “Cole” Kern (Class of 2022)
It is with great sadness that we inform the
University community that Nicolas “Cole”
Kern, an undergraduate student from
Brookline, MA studying Business
Administration within the Grossman School of
Business passed away on November 19, 2019.
It is our understanding that Cole succumbed
to injuries he received during a tragic
incident in his hometown of Brookline.
Though Cole was not enrolled in classes this
semester, his loss will undoubtedly be felt
by those who knew him during his first year
We extend our deepest condolences to Cole’s
family. Our sincere thoughts of care and
sympathy are also extended to the friends,
classmates, faculty, and staff who knew him.
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. During this time,
we highly encourage you to reach out to your
primary support system as a source of care
and connection. If you, or someone you know,
are in need of professional counseling
