The Discovery

A student who lived at the Clark Kerr Campus — a student housing complex — was found unresponsive Tuesday at about 4:23 p.m. local time, UC Berkeley spokesperson Janet Gilmore said. The victim’s grandmother, Esther Wojcicki, confirmed his death and his identity in a Wednesday Facebook post.

A Grandmother’s Grief

“My beloved grandson Marco Troper, age 19 passed away yesterday. Our family is devastated beyond comprehension,” Esther Wojcicki said.

Response and Investigation

The Berkeley Fire Department responded to the complex and notified the University of California Police Department that it was “attempting life-saving measures” on the student, Gilmore said. By the time campus police arrived, the BFD had pronounced him dead.

Gilmore said there were no signs of foul play and that an investigation into the death was underway.

Remembering Marco Troper

According to his grandmother, Troper “was just getting started” in his second semester of freshman year at UC Berkeley, where he was majoring in math “and was truly loving it.”

Aside from “thriving academically,” Esther Wojcicki said, Troper had a “strong community of friends,” both from his dorm and his fraternity.

Conclusion

The loss of Marco Troper has deeply saddened the community at UC Berkeley, leaving many to mourn a young life full of potential and promise.
