Celebration of Life for Austin Lopes

On May 8, 2021, the Emerson community lost one of our brightest lights when Austin Lopes passed away following a long illness. We now have the opportunity to come together on Friday, October 1, to celebrate his life and the impact he had on all of us. 

The Celebration of Life will begin at 3:00 pm in the Bill Bordy Theater, followed by a reception in the Lion’s Den. 

For members of the Emerson community, An RSVP on EmConnect is appreciated (but not required). 

For non-Emerson family and friends of Austin, we are honored to welcome you to our campus for the Memorial and we’ll require pre-registration to keep our gathering safe for all.  Please email Julie Avis Rogers, campus chaplain at for information on COVID protocols and to pre-register. 

Please note: If you’d like to attend the service virtually, you can connect in to the zoom webinar here:

For more information, please contact Julie Avis Rogers, Campus Chaplain at or Lucas Poyser at
