Fifteen Ohio State students passed away this school year but their memory lives on. The Ohio State community came together this week at a memorial service held in the Ohio Union where family and friends were able to reflect on the community’s loss.

Dom Tiberi, 10tv Sports Anchor and father of Maria Tiberi, also spoke on campus about his daughter who passed away in 2013. At an awareness program called Maria’s Message, Tiberi emphasized the importance of defensive driving and limiting distractions on the road.
