Chenxu Ma, a junior in the College of Arts & Sciences, died in a car accident, according to a statement from President Lovell. He was home for the summer in China when he passed away.

Students were notified via email Monday, Aug. 7.

Ma majored in Economics during his time at Marquette. Lovell requested the Marquette community to keep Ma in their thoughts and prayers, even if they did not have the opportunity to meet him.

“Times like this are a reminder that our Marquette family extends around the globe,” Lovell said. “We ask our family to come together as one.”

Chris Jenkins, associate director of communication, said as students return to campus later this month, he urges anyone affected by this to make use of university resources. Those include the Counseling Center, Campus Ministry and Office of International Education.

“We’re deeply saddened by the news of Chenxu’s death,” Jenkins said.
