The Marquette community offers prayers and our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of our former student Matthew Thompson, who died in Afghanistan this week.

Matthew attended Marquette from Fall 2006 to Spring 2008 and was a student in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences. He went on to complete his education at another institution before joining the Army and becoming a Special Forces medical sergeant.

He served as a resident assistant in O’Donnell Hall during his time at Marquette. His friend and fellow resident assistant, Matthew Manning, said, “He was one of the best humans I ever knew. He was deeply, deeply, deeply loved by his residents and all of us.”
