University Mourns Loss of Student, Teammate, Friend
July 25, 2012
Just weeks after the men’s lacrosse team won the national championship, the players found themselves mourning their teammate Adam Pomper, ’15, who passed away June 12.
A resident of Huntington Bay, N.Y., and graduate of St. Anthony’s High School in Melville, N.Y., Pomper was pursuing a communication major at Loyola. He is survived by his parents, Bruce and Kay, his older brothers, Max and Brian, his grandmother, Mary Jo Hughes, and many relatives and friends.
“As a coach and father, my heart goes out to Adam’s family and friends,” said Charley Toomey, head men’s lacrosse coach. “I don’t know that there are words adequate to describe the feelings of loss and grief we feel in the Loyola lacrosse family. We will continue to look to each other for strength as we keep Adam’s family in our prayers.”
