New Univ. ice rink should be named “The Justin Booska Memorial Rink” in honor of an archetypal Brandeisian

Justin Booska ’13 was that rare Brandeisian who exemplified the best of our university. He was a natural leader, a kind soul and a thoughtful colleague who always thought of others before himself. Tragically, Justin disappeared before his fifth-year Brandeis reunion. Brandeis should honor his legacy, the asset he was to our little slice of Waltham, and the impact he had on the people he touched, which rippled across the entire globe.

So when my phone suddenly went berserk with news alerts, I knew I was in for an emotional afternoon.
