CCAD Mourns Loss of Student


The CCAD community is saddened by the passing of one of our students, Jeffrey Stevenson. Jeffrey, an Illustration major from Dublin, OH, who had just finished his sophomore year, was struck by a hit-and-run driver while riding his bicycle on Sawmill Road on Friday morning, May 21. He was taken to Riverside Hospital, but his injuries were too severe for doctors to revive him.Jeffrey was a bright and talented individual who showed much promise as a young artist. He was one of four CCAD students who had work accepted for the New York Society of Illustrators 2010 Exhibition and was known as an excellent student by his faculty. We grieve with the loss of our friend and student whose life has been cut short by this tragedy, and send our heartfelt condolences to his mother and other loved ones.
We will update our campus community when we know the details of the funeral arrangements. Our Counseling Center staff are available next week for those who need to talk with someone about their grief. If you are a student, faculty or staff member and feel you need to talk with someone immediately, please call 614.348.3320.
