Jackson Seivwright Death: According to school officials, a Wesleyan University student who was studying abroad died on Sunday as a result of a skiing accident.
Officials identified the student as junior Jack Seivwright, a member of the class of 2024, in a Tweet on Monday afternoon. The location of the accident was not disclosed by the school.
According to the university, Seivwright played soccer for Wesleyan during the 2020–21 season as a freshman.
Geoff Wheeler, head coach of the men’s soccer team at Wesleyan, described Jack as “a bundle of energy who liked being active and spending time with his buddies.” His life ending so soon makes me very sad.
According to university administrators, Seivwright was regarded by the campus community as a “student-athlete who drew people together.”
He will be much missed by many, according to school administrators. “We send Jack’s family, friends, and loved ones our sympathies.
Elmore, Vermont, and a graduate of Stowe High School are listed as Steivwright’s hometowns on the Wesleyan men’s soccer team roster.
A statement from the school reads;
It is with deep sadness that we write to inform you of the death of Wesleyan student Jackson (Jack) Seivwright ’24.

Known on campus as a student-athlete who brought people together, he will be sorely missed by so many. We offer our condolences to Jack’s family, friends, and loved ones.
Jack’s mother, Kimberly Bruno sent the following message: “We loved our son Jackson, and we know so many who were lucky enough to know him loved him too. Jack had a unique zest for life and moved through the world with a giant grin. He embraced it all with gusto and always shared his enthusiasm with everyone.
Even as we mourn, it is beautiful here in the Green Mountains Jack called home. So we ask that those of you who knew and loved Jackson go outside, find your own beautiful place of peace and a smile in your heart, and let Jack know you appreciated crossing his too-short path.”
