Seth L. Karon ’01
Karon, who had a longstanding battle with depression, had been on a formal leave of absence from the Institute since August, said Dean of Students Robert M. Randolph.
He majored in Chemistry and was a member of Tau Epsilon Pi. In addition, he was a gifted photographer and writer.
Funeral and prayer services for Karon were held on Friday and Saturday in his hometown. The Chemistry Department is working to arrange a department-wide gathering to pay tribute to him.
Karon is survived by his parents, Robert and Stephanie, and a brother, Jason.
