A message from President Roberts regarding the passing of Jake Long, Lancer Food Services employee

Dear Students,

We are deeply saddened to learn that Jake Long, a member of our Shoreline family, was one of the three victims of the fatal Mukilteo shooting this past weekend. Jake worked as an employee of Lancer Hospitality on campus and was known by many as a bright and friendly staff member who specialized in making delicious wraps and sandwiches with care for our community each day.

Students, staff, and faculty are invited to join a brief community gathering tomorrow (Aug 2) at 12:30 p.m. in the PUB lobby in remembrance of Jake.

Counseling is available this week to speak with any students who may need grief support. The Counseling Center is located in the FOSS Building in Room 5229. A 24-hour Crisis Line is available to students after hours at 866-427-4747.

President Roberts said, “As a treasured member of our Shoreline community, Jake’s passing is a terrible tragedy. The administration and counselors will do all we can to support students and employees who may be grieving this tremendous loss. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of all who are affected by this senseless shooting.”

In support as we are going through tender times,

Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
