Isaac Harris

It is with great sadness that we share the news that Isaac Harris, a third year Data Science student died on Monday 5th June 2023, in Coventry.

Isaac was a well-liked and talented student who will be very much missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him during his studies at Warwick.

The whole department are tremendously saddened by the news of Isaac’s death. He was a hugely valued member of our student community and his loss is particularly felt by his fellow students on the Data Science programme.

We offer our deepest sympathies to Isaac’s friends and family.

The sudden and unexpected loss of anyone we know can be traumatic, and we will continue to provide support to anyone who needs it. To speak to someone for bereavement support, please contact wellbeing support services or the chaplaincy.

An online condolence book has been opened to share memories of Isaac and offer condolences to his family and friends:

Entries will be published weekly and will be printed as a book for Isaac’s family to keep. If you would rather, you can write a message in a physical Condolence Book in the chaplaincy.
