UA Mourns the Loss of Bakari Henderson

July 7, 2017

All of us at the University of Arizona are shocked and saddened by the loss of our recent graduate, Bakari Henderson.

Our hearts and prayers are with his friends and family. I can only imagine the deep sense of loss they must be feeling at his untimely death. It is always a tragedy when a young life ends before it has really yet to begin.

Our staff in the Dean of Students office are reaching out to the faculty and staff across campus. We also are working with his student organizations and the affiliations he had on campus to offer support to those who knew Bakari.

I know I speak for the university community as I express deepest condolences to Bakari’s family and friends.
