Message from the President
April 27, 2021

Dear LMU Community:

I am saddened to share that Jacqueline Huitron, a senior administrative coordinator in Human Resources, passed away on April 25, 2021, following a five-month battle with COVID-19. She was 39 years old.

Ms. Huitron joined LMU in September 2012 and became a valued member of the Human Resources records team. From the beginning of the pandemic, she was instrumental in ensuring that HR was able to address the myriad challenges that the LMU community was facing, demonstrating a deep sense of dedication and commitment to the university. Ms. Huitron made significant contributions to the department, and her generous spirit, positive attitude, and good humor inspired her colleagues.

Memorial services are pending. In lieu of flowers, Ms. Huitron’s family has set up a GoFundMe page to help defray expenses.

Please keep Jackie, her children, Nicholas, Jocelyn ’24, and Abigail, her family, and her many friends in your prayers.


Timothy Law Snyder, Ph.D.
