In Memoriam: Office of Cashier Manager Andy Vasquez

To: UCSC Staff and Faculty

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the death earlier this week of our colleague, Andy Vasquez, manager of the Cashier's Office. Having personally worked with Andy many times since my arrival on campus 12 years ago, I can attest to him being a hard worker, dedicated to doing good for the campus.

You could always depend on Andy to get the job done. During the times of each quarter when student payment volumes are at their peak, Andy and our Cashier's Office colleagues worked well into the evening to get payments processed. I and others appreciated his healthy sense of humor, which often helped those around him maintain the proper perspective in trying situations.

A memorial service will be held for Andy this Saturday, September 27, at 11 a.m. at the Green Valley Christian Center, 376 South Green Valley Road, Watsonville.

Andy will be missed, but we can all take heart in knowing that his contributions to the University will not be forgotten.

I hope you join me in sending Andy's family our sincerest condolences, and please know that the Cashier's Office staff members very much appreciate the support they've received this week.
