Condolences to Piotr Marszalek
Dear Pratt Community,
I write today to share sad news. As some of you may have heard, our colleague Professor Piotr Marszalek lost his son Filip Kamil Marszalek, 25, through a tragic accident late last week.
Piotr, his wife and other son are planning a small, private family service for tomorrow. At this point, they do not anticipate holding an open public service. Filip made the decision in life to be an organ donor, and I understand that several individuals have received an organ gift. I hope this is of some comfort to the Marszalek family.
Few things in life are more devastating and painful than losing a child. At times such as this, words seem inadequate, but we offer our deepest sympathy and caring to Piotr and his family. I know he does and would appreciate your expressions of condolence and support.
Professor and Dean
