The Amherst community is invited to gather in remembrance of Jordan Moore-Fields ’11 at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 19, in the Cole Assembly Room in Converse Hall. A formal memorial service will be scheduled for later in the semester.
The following is a statement from Amherst College President Anthony W. Marx.
I write with terrible news, which some of you may have heard already. Jordan Moore-Fields ’11 of Oak Park, Illinois, died on Sunday, Oct. 12, in a car accident that took place on Interstate 91 just north of Springfield. He was returning to campus from Baltimore, where he and three other Amherst students had gone to visit a friend. The three other students sustained minor injuries and were taken to Baystate Hospital, where they were treated and released.
