Honor Connor Educational Fund

Connor Jacob William Thomson, 20, of Denver, CO, died in a car accident on Saturday, December 12th, 2020.

Connor was born at Rose Hospital in Denver on September 29th, 2000, to parents David and Larah. He graduated from Cherry Creek High School in 2018 where he developed a passion for business. He was in his junior year at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where he was majoring in Economics and Communications. As a member of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, Connor served as the community service specialist on the philanthropy board, organizing food drives and other philanthropic projects around Boulder. He cared deeply about the Boulder community, as demonstrated by his interactions with the homeless population, with whom he knew most of by name.

Connor loved his family, his friends, and his fraternity. He continually inspired others to be themselves because he was so unapologetically himself. His parents could not be more grateful that the Lord allowed them to be entrusted with Connor. Connor is survived by his brother, Zach, his father, David, his mother, Larah, his paternal grandmother, Betty, and his maternal grandmother, Patricia, as well as several other cousins, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and beloved friends. He was preceded in death by his uncle, Darren, and his two grandfathers, Alfred and Llewelyn.

In his memory, his family is establishing an educational scholarship fund to help students that are members of the Colorado Alpha chapter of Phi Kappa Psi that demonstrate significant financial need and are exceptional contributors to philanthropic efforts.

The service for Connor will be held Friday, December 18th at 1:30 p.m. at Horan & McConaty. The service is private, but there will be a live streaming of the service. For live streaming, visit https://bxcited.com/connorthomson/
