Re:      Domenic Morse

It is with a heavy heart that we inform the University community that, 
after an extensive search of the Burlington and Winooski area, Domenic 
Morse was found deceased by the Burlington Police Department on November 
11, 2020. Domenic had been reported missing by friends, which prompted 
the area-wide search effort. Domenic began his time at UVM in Spring 
2019 studying Business Administration in the Grossman School of 
Business. Though he was not an active student this semester, we know 
that Domenic remained closely tied to the UVM community and the 
students, staff, and faculty who knew him.

We extend our deepest condolences to Dom’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 please 
do not hesitate to contact UVM’s Counseling and Psychiatry Services at 
(802) 656-3340 (for students) or Invest EAP at (802) 864-EAPØ (3270) or 
toll free at 1-866-660-9533 (for employee assistance).
