On March 10, 2019, Cedric Asiavugwa (Georgetown Law L’19/LLM’20) tragically passed away in the crash of Ethiopian Airlines flight ET302, which took 157 lives. He was 32 years old, and on his way home to Kenya for a last minute trip after the passing of his fiancée’s mother.
Cedric was a bright light to all those who were fortunate to come into contact with him. With his quiet brilliance, radiating smile, and enduring kindness and compassion, he tended to us all.
