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.
