Jacob Nisbet ’10 passed away yesterday from cancer, according to a message sent to students today by Interim Vice President for Student Affairs Ginger Ambler ’88 Ph.D ’06.
“He really loved William and Mary so much. He enjoyed his amazing professors and making wonderful friends,” Nisbet’s mother, Carmen Torres-Nisbet, said in the message. “His main goal was to come back, though that wasn’t to be.”
Nisbet, 20, was a sociology major and a tennis and soccer enthusiast.
“For most of us who come to William and Mary as students, it does not take long for us to make good friends and to appreciate the value of the sense of community we share. That was certainly the case with Jacob,” Ambler said. “We extend our deepest sympathy to his parents, his brother, and all those at the College who were his special friends. Because we are a community, we all share in the sadness of his most untimely death.”
An evening visitation will take place Monday, Nov. 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Berceuse Funeral and Cremation Traditions, at 2609 Cunningham Drive in Hampton. Tuesday, Nov. 11, funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. at St. Joseph Church , 414 Buckroe Ave in Hampton, with a graveside service following at Parklawn Memorial Park, 2551 N. Armistead Avenue. According to the message, guests are invited to a reception afterward at Cordier Hall, across the street from St. Joseph at 512 Buckroe Avenue.
