SOUTH ORANGE, NJ — The Seton Hall University student who died from injuries sustained when he fell from the campus parking deck on Tuesday afternoon has been identified as Julian M. Mislavsky in a letter to the Seton Hall community from Interim President Mary J. Meehan.
Mislavsky was a senior at Seton Hall and was from Morristown, stated Meehan.
"We will have a memorial service on campus, but until the arrangements can be finalized I ask you again to remember Julian and his family and friends in your prayers," wrote Meehan, adding, "This is a difficult time for our community and we all respond differently to tragedy. I urge you to seek assistance from our counseling and Campus Ministry services at any time if you feel the need for support."
South Orange Police officers responded to a 911 call at about 12:15 p.m. on September 11, reporting that an individual had fallen from the roof of the parking deck, according to a statement from South Orange Police Chief Kyle M. Kroll.
Upon arrival, officers found a man laying on the grass median adjacent to the parking deck’s vehicular exit, who was later determined to be a 23-year-old Seton Hall student, Kroll said.
The man had sustained life-threatening injuries, and was treated at the scene by emergency personnel and transported to University Hospital in Newark, where he was pronounced dead at 1:12 p.m., Kroll said.
The cause of death will be determined pending the results of an autopsy by the medical examiner’s office, and the preliminary investigation reveals no evidence of foul play, according to police.
The incident is under investigation by detectives at this time, and any individuals or witnesses with information about the incident are encouraged to contact Detective Lt. Brian McGuire of the South Orange Police Department at 973-763-3000, ext. 7788.
