Jason Ray, UNC Mascot, Dead at 21

Just a quick update to note that since this morning's post, Jason Ray, the 21 year old senior mascot for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels has passed away.

The Associated Press says that the NCAA is discussing how to memorialize Ray's life at this weekend's men's Final Four in Atlanta. CBS has a nice story here that re-caps the last few days.

I can't imagine how they must feel at this time. My son John is six and Emma is three and I have so many hopes and dreams for them. I can't imagine losing them so young.

My thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time.
