Marian University Mourns the Loss of Dyjuan Lewis

by Tori Kincaid | Mar 21, 2014

Dyjuan LewisLast night, the Marian University community learned of the tragic loss of Dyjuan Lewis, a junior majoring in psychology, and a member of the Marian University Knights football team. On behalf of everyone at Marian University, I want to express my heartfelt condolences to Dyjuan’s family and friends. The loss of this young student athlete deeply saddens and affects us all. He will be missed by his coaches, professors, and friends.

Details surrounding Dyjuan’s death are still forthcoming. Funeral arrangements are pending and will be posted on the Flanner and Buchanan website when they become available.

The university is making grief counselors available on campus beginning this morning. Students can walk in or call the Learning and Counseling Center (LCC) on the first floor of Clare Hall or at 317.955.6150. Urgent, after-hours concerns can be addressed by calling 317.955.6789 to connect with an on-call counselor. 

Please join me in keeping Dyjuan’s parents, his family and his friends in your thoughts and prayers throughout the coming days.
