Lance Corporal Jeffrey Lam, a student in Pace's BBA in information systems program, was killed in a vehicle accident in Iraq in early November. Lam, the son of immigrant parents from Hong Kong, was proud to be an American citizen and joined the Marine Corps Reserve's 6th Communications Battalion, 4th Force Service Support Group in Brooklyn because he "wanted to do something very meaningful."
