Evan Roberts, a friend of Ben wrote; Ben Pollack, I just met you for beers a couple of weeks ago. You were telling me all about your plans for finishing up the degree, building your program, and traveling. We were the only MMEs in our year together, and I thought we’d be colleagues forever. I’m devastated you’re gone. You made IU so fun and memorable and I’ll miss you so much.
