Palm Beach Atlantic University today mourns the loss of student John Doerr, a sophomore who died in a traffic accident on Oct. 28.
Doerr, of suburban Lantana, majored in cinema-television with a concentration in television production. He also worked part time in the University’s Media Services Department.
A group of Doerr’s friends and coworkers gathered on campus for prayer during the weekend.
Interim President William M.B. Fleming, Jr., encouraged the University community to pray for Doerr’s loved ones and the entire University family. "I praise God for His comfort, strength and healing at times such as this," Interim President Fleming said.
Services will be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in PBA’s DeSantis Family Chapel.
