University of Arizona Mourns the Loss of Jetal Agnihotri

Aug. 23, 2022

The University of Arizona is profoundly saddened by the tragic loss of our graduate student Jetal Agnihotri. She was a promising young researcher who had just earned a major grant and who spent most of her free time adventuring outdoors.

She will be greatly missed by students, staff, and faculty at the Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences, a small tight-knit group where everyone knows each other, some of whom were with her in Zion National Park before her disappearance.  She will be forever remembered by those who knew her at the university as gracious, humble, and dedicated.  

We convey our deepest condolences to her family and friends at this very difficult time.

President Robert C. Robbins
