Statement from Coffeyville Community College:
It is with deep sympathy that we inform you of the loss of one of our own.
Chase Dennis, a sophomore and student athlete at Coffeyville Community College, passed away this afternoon at an area lake while swimming with friends.
“Each student at Coffeyville Community College is integral to the family dynamic of our campus. To lose one of our own, greatly wounds us all”, said CCC President Linda Moley.
Four County Mental Health professionals have been brought in to assist our students, faculty and staff during this difficult time. We are working with the family of Mr. Dennis and offering them our full cooperation in this time of immense sadness.
“He was a fantastic kid, hard-worker, and always did everything we asked him to do. He was full of life and signed with Northwestern State University in Louisiana earlier this week”, said CCC Head Track Coach Craig Perry.
