It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of our dear friend and alumnus, Chris Snow '99. On September 30, 2023, Chris lost his heroic battle with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), surrounded by loved ones.
As the assistant general manager for the Calgary Flames and a former sports reporter for the Boston Globe, Chris was diagnosed with ALS in 2019. Despite this, he remained an incredible source of inspiration by living his life with courage and by throwing the first pitch at a Red Sox game for his 40th birthday. As a member of our alumni community, Chris embodied the spirit of those who go More Beyond and exemplify our motto Plus Ultra, while serving as a powerful source of inspiration and determination. His legacy will continue to inspire current and future generations of our alumni.
Chris was more than just an alumnus; he was an extraordinary soul whose presence touched the lives of everyone he met. During his time with us, Chris was a dedicated student and a friend to many. His infectious enthusiasm, sense of humor, and willingness to lend a helping hand endeared him to all who had the privilege of knowing him.
In the face of ALS, Chris continued to display remarkable strength and grace, becoming an advocate for ALS awareness and research. He used his journey to shed light on the challenges faced by those living with the disease, and in doing so, he became a beacon of hope for countless others.
Chris's memory will forever be cherished within our alumni community, symbolizing the strength found in unity and the power of the human spirit. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and loved ones during this difficult time.
As we mourn the loss of a cherished member of our alumni family, let us also celebrate the profound impact Chris Snow had on our lives and the lives of many. His legacy of courage, resilience, and kindness will continue to inspire us all.
Chris left an indelible mark in our hearts and memories, and he will always hold a special place in our hearts.
