Loss of Students Adam Michael Lang and
Rickey Jackson

Dear friends,

I am very sorry to inform you of the recent deaths of two HSU students, Adam Michael Lang and Rickey Jackson.

Adam died Monday, July 27. He was 22. Originally from New Mexico, Adam had transferred to Humboldt State from UC Davis last fall and was majoring in Botany. Rickey, 58, of Stockton, died July 19. He started attending HSU last fall and was a Social Work major.

On behalf of the entire University community, I extend my deepest condolences to Adam and Rickey’s family and friends and to all in the HSU community who knew them.

Students who are interested in additional support during this time are encouraged to contact the Dean of Students office at 707.826.3504 or visit that office in Siemens Hall 211. Staff or faculty seeking additional support may utilize the Employee Assistance Program at 707.443.7358.

Sincerely yours,

Lisa A. Rossbacher, Ph.D.
