Lewis, a junior majoring in psychology, and a member of the Marian University
Knights football team. On behalf of everyone at Marian University, I want to
express my heartfelt condolences to Dyjuan’s family and friends. The loss of this
young student athlete deeply saddens and affects us all. He will be missed by
his coaches, professors, and friends.
Details surrounding Dyjuan’s death are still forthcoming. Funeral arrangements are pending and will be posted on the Flanner and Buchanan website when they become available.
university is making grief counselors available on campus beginning this
