The Loss of Jack Reid

May 1, 2022
I am profoundly saddened to inform you of the tragic loss of Fourth Form student Jack Reid, who died by suicide in Dickinson House in the late hours of Saturday, April 30. On behalf of the entire Lawrenceville community, I offer sincere condolences to Jack’s family, with whom I am in regular contact. I ask that you please respect the family’s privacy as they face this most challenging time.
In this moment, we will rely on our ability to come together. I realize the impact of this event on our community, especially on the residents of Dickinson House, the track team, and The Lawrentians in particular, where Jack was known and loved – will be there for one another as we process the loss together one day at a time and engage in healthy discussions as a community.
