Statement from University of Minnesota President Eric W. Kaler on the death of student-athlete Gary Tinsley

April 6, 2012

"It is always difficult to lose a member of the University family. Gary was close to graduating from the University’s College of Education and Human Development with a major in business and marketing education. 

"In addition, he was an important part of Gopher Athletics who was engaged in public service. Our thoughts are with Gary's family and everyone on campus who knew him."
