President Mary Sue Coleman on Dr. Mark Pescovitz
December 13, 2010
On behalf of the University of Michigan community, I want to express my deep sadness and shock over the tragic death of Dr. Mark Pescovitz, husband of Dr. Ora Pescovitz, our executive vice president for medical affairs.
Mark was a gifted transplant surgeon and administrator at Indiana University’s School of Medicine. He was a talented artist, an intensely engaged member of his community and, most meaningfully, a dedicated father and husband, and a dear friend to many of us.
Those of us fortunate enough to know Mark saw firsthand his commitment to his family, to their faith, and to serving others. We know that their faith will support them in the difficult days ahead, and we offer our deepest sympathies to Ora and her family. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
Details about how the University community can express its condolences will be forthcoming and posted on www.umevpma.org.
President Mary Sue Coleman
