Remembering the life of James “Jimmy” CurtisPosted: September 20, 2011
By Kathleen Armstrong
Just one week before James “Jimmy” Curtis would be entering his senior year here at Lasell College a fatal accident took his life. Jimmy was a Criminal Justice major and passionate about the sports he was involved in. He was a member of the Track and Field team and Co-Captain of the Rugby Club. Many knew Jimmy for his strong Boston accent and incredible sense of humor. Whenever you were around him, you knew you would be able to have a good laugh.
This was not the news that many students wanted to come back from summer vacation to hear. Members of the Lasell College community though, were able to come together in this tough time and be there for one another. The loss of Jimmy affected all those who knew him and even those who just knew of him. He set an impression on everyone’s heart that will never be replaced. He will always be in the thoughts of the students of the class of 2012 as graduation day approaches. Friends and loved ones will truly miss Jimmy.
For those who wish to remember the life of Jimmy, a memorial service will be held Wednesday September 28, 2011. The event is begins at 4:00p.m. in de Witt Hall, it is opened to all students and faculty who wish to join.
