A fellow classmate of our MBA.PM Class of 2015, Aren Vartanian, succumbed to cancer this past week on September 27, 2012. Aren had been diagnosed with cancer in the last year and had undergone chemotherapy treatment and surgery prior to his admission.
He is survived by his fiancé, Elina Abedi (MBA.PM Class of 2009), his family and many friends. A long-time friend who had known Aren since high school described Aren as the older brother he never had. He was “more than a friend, he was family.” Aren was a member of our family too, and he will be missed. Rest in peace, Aren.
Even though we had only been in class together for a little over a month, Aren had a significant impact on his fellow classmates. One of his classmates had this to say, “Aren was a friend, a fighter and I know I speak for the rest of my ‘Not on Gameday’ teammates when I say he was an inspiration to us to live every day we have to the fullest.”
Please help us help his family by making a donation of what you can spare.
