Offering our sympathy

Dear students, faculty and staff,

We are deeply saddened to inform the Temple community of the passing of Michael Paytas, a fourth-year marketing major from Holmes, Pennsylvania. Michael was found unresponsive Monday in Paley Library and was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

Michael was 24 years old and transferred to Temple in 2014 from Delaware County Community College. We extend our thoughts and prayers to Michael’s family, friends, classmates and faculty.

We encourage any student needing support to visit Tuttleman Counseling Services at 1700 N. Broad St.
