Jarrod Cupps, 1980-2013
It's with a very heavy heart that I must let you know that Jarrod Cupps, one of our students, passed away recently. He had a heart condition. Jarrod was a veteran from the US Air Force. His family is planning a private service in California, where much of their family is, at a veteran's national cemetery.  His parents wanted us to know how much he enjoyed USF, working with other students and being part of our Computer Science program.

Jarrod was a Web Application Development Senior and also worked as a Lab Assistant helping out with maintaining the lab and tutoring students. He was involved in a number of Computer Science department events, including presentations on Mobile Apps and Robotics here at USF.   Jarrod was a popular Computer Science tutor because of his patience in helping students.   You could frequently find Jarrod in the Computer Science lab working or talking with students.

Last summer he taught the Lego Summer Camp for USF Solutions. He worked with several Boy Scout troops on robotics badges.  He was designated the Joan Nahas Ramuta Computer Science Award winner for 2013.

A memorial service is planned for Wednesday, April 17th, at noon in the St. Joseph’s Chapel in the Motherhouse on the USF Joliet Campus.

We want to express our condolences to Jarrod’s family.   I know we'll all miss him.  Rest in peace, Jarrod.
