Alexia Thompson, an FAU student, unfortunately died at the age of 21 on April 1, according to Dignity Memorial.  

Thompson was the vice president of the Students of Physical & Occupational Therapy (SPOT) Club, a registered student organization at FAU. To honor her, SPOT will host a “Remembering Alexia Thompson” event on April 9 at 6 p.m. 

SPOT announced on April 8 that the original location was changed. The event will be held in the Palmetto Palm Room 230 in the Student Union. They also encouraged students to show their support by wearing pink clothing.

“We will be making cards on sharing some of our favorite things and memories about Alexia to then send to her family,” reads a SPOT Instagram post. “This event is open to anyone who knew and loved Alexia. She would love to spiritually see you guys there.”

The FAU Campus Recreation Department expressed condolences towards Thompson, who was a student staff member, reminiscing about her personality and work ethic.

“She had a personal and positive impact, not only on members of the rec but also on her fellow student staff members. Alexia, you will be missed. May she rest in peace,” Campus Recreation wrote in an Instagram post.
