On January 21 2012, Kerry Rose Fitzsimons was killed in her Marist college off campus house along with her friends Eva Block and Kevin Johnson. Kerry was a senior studying biomedical science and was months away from graduation.
Kerry’s enthusiasm for life was contagious. She worked at our local music store, played guitar, violin, and piano. She loved all types of music, from classical to Dave Matthews and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Kerry interned at the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation – Norrie Point Environmental Center where she worked in the Hudson River with the glass eels project. Kerry was also working with a surgeon and planned to work in the medical field with cancer patients.
