Jack Blackburn Has Died

UVA Dean of Admissions Jack Blackburn has succumbed to liver cancer. The 67-year-old held the position since 1985, and was popular and respected enough that $1.5M was just raised to establish scholarships in his name, the university points out in a statement on his death. He’d planned to retire in June.

The memorial service will be held at Westminster Presbyterian at 11 AM on Saturday, followed by a reception at Alumni Hall.
