R+T Park mourns the loss of former student

A statement from R+T Park Director, Mike Pereira, on the loss of former co-op student Stephanie Ye-Mowe

Together with the Waterloo Undergraduate Student Association (WUSA), and the University of Waterloo, the R+T Park community is deeply saddened to share that our former co-op student Stephanie Ye-Mowe passed away this week.

Stephanie joined R+T Park as a co-op student for the summer of 2020 – it was the first summer of the pandemic and we very much navigated those uncertain and challenging days together through daily phone calls and zoom meetings.

Stephanie was one of the finest examples of what a student can bring to a role. She wasn’t afraid to ask questions, bring great ideas, and think creatively about problems. She regularly challenged me to do better and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have worked with her.

Following her tenure with R+T Park Stephanie distinguished herself at the University of Waterloo as strong student leader, continuing to challenge all of us to do better. She always knew we had it in us to do more and consistently found ways to bring everyone along in her vision for a more equitable and accessible University community.

I am deeply saddened to know we’ve lost Stephanie, and saddened to consider the loss of what she would have achieved in the brilliant life and career that was ahead of her.
