In an email to students on Tuesday, University of Iowa Dean of Students Angie Reams announced that third-year enterprise leadership major Jeff Vipond died on Monday.

Reams said an obituary is not available at this time, but the university offers its condolences to Vipond’s friends, family, and loved ones.

The UI encourages students to reach out to resources and support systems on campus following the loss of a fellow student and member of our community, which Reams said can be very difficult.

For students or community members who would like to speak privately to University Counseling Services, the UI encourages students to call 319-335-7294 to arrange an appointment. The Faculty and Staff Services Employee Assistance Program is available for faculty and staff, and can be reached at 319-335-2085.
