Mike died this morning about 11 a.m., while we were attending Dr. Hancock's session in CC230. I wish you all could have met him. If he had been feeling well, you all WOULD have met him and loved him. All students did, because he was so kind and happy all the time, and was a lot of fun to be with. He added so much life to the program last year and I'll never forget how proud he was to lead cheers, shout O-H and wait for the big I-O!, and to join us for lunches and the farewell party. He was always willing to go the extra mile for us, and many students over the last two years kept in touch with him over email. Mike also really had a heart for disabled students, and volunteered every year for the huge Special Olympics event on campus for handicapped children. He had a very soft heart.
God bless you, Mike, and thank you for all you have done over the last three years to make Ohio State a friendly, welcoming place for all students, and thank you for treating all our visitors from China like a cherished part of the OSU family. Thank you, Mike.
Though you never knew him, Mike Dunn was a positive and vital part of our summer program. Mike, you are already missed greatly, and we in the program remember you, respect you, and we will always miss you.
