Recent graduate dies in car accident

When Emory senior John Kelsey died in Savannah over St. Patrick's Day weekend, Jessica Glasser wrote a moving tribute in the April 2 edition of The Emory Wheel. "Never take loving someone for granted," she wrote. "Tell the people in your life you love them every chance you get because you never know when you might lose them."

Glasser, who graduated this spring with high honors in women's studies and political science and had been accepted to the University of Virginia Law School, was killed in an automobile accident on her way home to Norfolk, Va., on May 20. According to witnesses, shortly after Glasser crossed the state line into Virginia, her car drifted onto the right shoulder of the highway. She swerved left as if to compensate and crossed into the median area. The car then flipped over and slid into a tree. She was wearing her safety belt, and no alcohol was involved.

Glasser was a member of Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority and president of Pi Sigma Alpha, the political science honorary fraternity.

According to University Chaplain Susan Henry-Crow, Glasser will be included in the memorial service for alumni on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 11:15 a.m. during University Worship in Cannon Chapel.
