Layla Julien Obituary – Death: University of St. Thomas Community Mourns Death of Student: According to an online obituary on Friday, December 16, 2022, Layla Julien has passed away unexpectedly. However, cause of death was not disclosed.
Layla Julien, a first-year student majoring in business administration and communication, died on December 13 after a battle with cancer, and the University of St. Thomas community is in grief.

According to Julien’s family, she enjoyed being one of the campus’ newest Tommies and would return as soon as physically possible following her different therapies.

As you pray, please keep Julien in your thoughts and join us in asking God to comfort her family and friends.
Students, educators, and staff who need support can turn to Campus Ministry and counseling and psychological services.
There will be a memorial service for Julien. Please return in the upcoming days for more information.
