OBITUARY
Emery Jordan passed away on October 1, 2022. It is heartbreaking that we will never get to see Emery - who was exceptionally talented, motivated, and intelligent - reach their potential as an artist and scholar. They had many plans for the future that they had been excited to discuss. With love and remembrance, let's celebrate the time we had together.
