    Very, very sad. And he was so young.

    What a shock! He was involved with my daughter's audition at Chicago Unifieds. Such a terrible loss!

    So hard to believe- like oddDad's daughter we just saw him at Unifieds..in fact he was out talking to the parents during part of the dance call

    This is very sad news. He was VERY involved at Chicago Unifieds as a visible and friendly rep that was fielding questions from both parents and students. Such a big loss for the Hartt School. Condolences to family and friends.

    I am so sorry to hear that. My daughter and I were very impressed with his energy and intensity when we met him at the Chicago Unifieds.

    So so sad! I told my son, who said his conversation with him was his favorite part of the Hartt audition.

    My son called me from high school to tell me (I already knew from a friend). He is so sad, if he went to Hartt, was so looking forward to working with him. So very young...

    Truly a horrible loss. At Chicago unifieds, he came off as a passionate, caring and intelligent man. Rest in peace.

    The students, and faculty, at Hartt are devastated. He embodied that program ("passionate, caring, and intelligent"--I couldn't have put it better, Eve.) He had so many plans and so much energy--he'd have been a force for the good in American theater as long as he lived.

    They had a kind of master class/memorial yesterday, with the whole theater division singing together. D said it was most moving thing she's ever seen. Just too sad.

    That's terrible. I had the pleasure of auditioning for him in Chicago and was very impressed, not to mention the Complete Symphonic Recording of Miss Saigon in which he plays the engineer is one of my favorite soundtracks. I am very sorry to hear this.
