RIP Daniel Havey

I am sad to note the passing of Prof. Daniel Havey, a father of two preschool girls and a professor at James Madison University. Press reports are that Prof. Havey committed suicide and was found in a JMU laboratory.

Like SeeArrOh said, if you're feeling this way, it's okay to get help.

My sincere condolences and prayers to his family, friends and coworkers.


  1. I had the pleasure of working with Dan. I just want to say that he truly was as amazing as everyone says he was.

  2. We went to grad school together and taught a lab together our first year. I am totally shocked and saddened. I had just looked him up in the past few weeks and found that he seemingly "had it all".

  3. Oh dear, I just passed a colleague in the hall maybe 10 minutes ago who said a former colleague at JMU had committed suicide, and now I read this...

    Condolences to all.

  4. I wonder if this was work related or personal matters. Still tragic news.

  5. According to the commentator at SeeArrOh's blog this was personal, not work-related. Very sad to see such a young and talented scientist's life being cut short.
