Enoch Lee

Mr. Lee, of Newark, was a senior biological sciences major, with minors in sociology and theatre studies. Mr. Lee was active in several student groups on campus. He served on the Executive Board for MEDLIFE, which works to help families lead healthier lives, and was past treasurer of the Pre-SOMA Society, which promotes osteopathic medical education. He also was active in the Golden Blues a cappella group.

"Mr. Lee touched many people throughout our community, and his death saddens us all," said José-Luis Riera, dean of students at UD. "Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and his many friends."

Mr. Lee worked in the Department of Biological Sciences office, helping James Farmer, facilities coordinator, by delivering parcels and assisting in the shop. Farmer remembered him as being very helpful and jovial and that he liked to share amusing stories.

Friend and fellow student April Gulotti remembered a MEDLIFE trip she and Mr. Lee took to Ecuador. "We went for a tour through this cave in the middle of the Amazon jungle. We wore flashlights around our heads and climbed along the sides holding onto ropes as bats hung above us. We arrived at a hole full of water 20 feet deep. The tour guide looked at the group and said, 'Anyone want to jump in?' I looked at Enoch, he grabbed my hand while smiling and we jumped! Enoch always reminded me that part of living life is doing the unexpected and taking on challenges, because you can do whatever you put your mind to.

""Enoch was the music to my ears, my inspiration, my dear friend, but most importantly, he was my greatest gift," Gulotti said. "Anyone who knew Enoch was beyond blessed to have had him in their life, because knowing him was truly a privilege. I can only hope to be able to impact half as many people’s lives as Enoch was able to."
