Waterloo mourns the loss of student

Thursday, August 16, 2018

It is with deep sadness that the University of Waterloo community learned of the accidental death of one of our students earlier this week.

CJ (Colton) Moore was a fourth-year Waterloo biomedical engineering student in addition to being a world-class competitive diver. CJ passed away in Port Burwell on August 12. He was 24.

The University continues to offer CJ’s family its sympathies and support, including hosting a Celebration of Life for CJ on campus.

CJ’s Celebration of Life will take place at the Humanities Theatre on Saturday, August 25 at 11 a.m. and will be followed by a reception. CJ’s Celebration of Life is open to the community.
