A Syracuse University freshman died ‘unexpectedly’ on Wednesday night, just a day after another student was fatally struck by a school trolley. 

Administrators at the university announced in a statement that John ‘Jack’ Lundin, from Tuckahoe, New York, died. Syracuse did not provide further details related to the student’s death. 

Lundin was a first-year student studying magazine, news and digital journalism in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and resided in Flint Hall.   

‘We offer our sincerest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to John’s family, friends and loved ones,’ said Marianne Thomson, Associate Vice President and Dean of Students.

‘We keep all those who knew and loved John in our thoughts and prayers as they grieve this unimaginable loss.’

The latest death at the university comes just a day after another freshman died after he was fatally struck by an SU trolley. 

Police responded to the intersection of Waverly and Comstock avenues at around 5.23pm on Tuesday after getting reports of the collision.

Trevor Pierce, an 18-year-old from Jaffrey, New Hampshire, was transported to the Upstate Medical University in critical condition. He was pronounced dead there, the Daily Orange reports.   

‘This is an unthinkable loss for Trevor’s family, friends and loved ones and the entire Syracuse University community,’ Thomson said in an email at the time. ‘We send our support, thoughts and prayers to everyone grieving and impacted by Trevor’s death.’

The trolley driver involved in the collision that killed Pierce has been placed on administrative leave as the incident is investigated. 

Pierce had been studying political philosophy in the College of Arts and Sciences and lived in Sadier Hall.    

‘This is an especially difficult week for our community as we mourn the loss of two young lives,’ Thomson said in the release announcing Lundin’s death. ‘Know that there are resources and services available to support our students, faculty and staff during this difficult time.’
