The Robert Morris University campus community is mourning the death of 21-year-old senior computer information systems student, Jordan Willis, yesterday afternoon.

Willis was described as a dedicated student involved in the Top Secret Colonials and a brother of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity on campus.

According to an email from Interim President David Jamison, “The RMU Police and Allegheny County Police Departments have ruled out foul play in Jordan’s passing and have confirmed that members of our campus community are not in any danger.”

The cause of death is still pending at this time.

The following picture was a tweet from the Robert Morris Delta Tau Delta Fraternity, of which Willis was a founding member.
