With great sadness, President Nathan Hatch has informed the Board of Trustees of the passing of University Trustee and dear friend John Medica. He died peacefully Friday in Reston, Virginia, surrounded by his wife, Megan, and his family and friends. He was 59 years old.
Medica received his MBA from Wake Forest in 1983, and enjoyed a dynamic career in the high tech industry at the leading edge of innovation. John met the love of his life, Megan Salzman (MA ’83), at Wake Forest and they were married in 1985. He joined the Business School Board of Visitors in 2001, and became a member of Board of Trustees in 2009.
“We are all stunned and suddenly bereft of someone who, in his unique way, formed a special friendship with all of us. John Medica has made deep and lasting contributions to every cause with which he has been associated, and certainly to Wake Forest. He will be dearly missed,” Hatch said. Read more about Medica here »
