In 2008, Jeremy Saxe spent a semester abroad in Nepal. A philosophy major at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania, he was profoundly affected by his experiences, and was especially disappointed by the poor local schools. A little girl in the family with which he was staying wanted to be a nurse. He didn’t see how that was going to happen with the limited curriculum offered.
On returning to the states, Saxe, who had a GPA of 3.84, decided to apply for a postgraduate Fulbright Scholarship to continue his studies in Nepal to see if he might be able to find a way to address, as his father describes it, the “gross disparities.” He never got the chance. Early in his senior year, Saxe was found dead in his off-campus apartment. He unknowingly had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a thickening of the heart muscle and the leading cause of sudden cardiac death among people under 30.
