The Wentworth community was left saddened and stunned last March when Sean Paradis, BSA ’13, M.Arch ’14, a standout athlete and dean’s list student during his time at the institute, was killed in a snowboarding accident at age 23. Friends and family, inspired by Sean’s positive outlook on life, honored his memory with the creation of the Sean K. Paradis Memorial Scholarship.

Daniel Russo coached Paradis in lacrosse for four years at Wentworth and currently coaches Sean’s brother, Alec. The team retired Sean’s number 6 earlier this year. “For Sean, it was never about him, but rather his teammates,” says Russo. “He displayed an outstanding work ethic and approached the sport with integrity and passion. He meant a great deal to me and the rest of the coaching staff.”
