David Kucera

Message from the President 

Jan. 10, 2011

Dear LMU Community,

It is with great sadness that I inform you that David Kucera, a sophomore entrepreneurship major in the College of Business Administration and a student-athlete, has died. He was 19 years old.

David was from Cupertino in Northern California and he was a scholarship athlete on LMU’s soccer team. His coach at LMU, Paul Krumpe, said that David was a well-rounded, well-loved teammate and that he loved being an LMU soccer player.  

David lived off-campus in Marina del Rey, and LMU was notified Sunday afternoon of his unexpected passing by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Funeral arrangements have yet to be determined. Please keep David’s family in your thoughts and prayers.


David W. Burcham
