The family of Adam Carlton Levine is remembering him this week after he was tragically pronounced dead at Jackson Memorial Hospital yesterday. His family states that the cause of death was “complications from a seizure,” though no more specific information has been given at this time.

Excerpts from his obituary follow:

“Levine was a 2013 graduate of Herndon High School, [and] a junior Political Science major at the University of Miami. At Miami, he was a member of Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity and was active in undergraduate student government. Levine’s larger-than-life personality and witty sense of humor made him the life of the party, whether it was a gathering of two or a stadium full of fellow students. 

“Truly beloved by all, Adam’s outgoing, caring personality and sense of humor was known to always make his friends smile,” Miami’s Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia Whitely said in a statement. “With a remarkably joyful disposition, he enjoyed helping his fellow students.”

Adam Levine spent a semester abroad in Sydney, Australia, last year and had plans to enroll in dental school after graduation. He had a passion for leadership and helping others, working when he was a teen as a teacher at Northern Virginia Hebrew Congregation’s (NVHC) religious school and as a counselor at its summer camp for preschoolers.

A memorial service will be held […] on Tuesday, March 22 […]. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations to the Camp Harlam Memorial Fund, c/o NVHC.”

Our thoughts are with Adam’s family during this difficult time.
