Caltech —Memorial Reception


A Memorial Service and Reception was held on Friday, January 28, 2011 in Dabney Lounge and Gardens, Caltech to celebrate the life of Jerry Marsden, beloved friend, colleague, teacher and mentor to an enormous number of people around the world. His passing was a huge loss on so many levels. He was a gifted professor and a true human being who wanted to share as much knowledge as he could with all who worked with him. He will be greatly missed and remembered always.

"Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?

Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?"
