On December 13, 1999, a lifelong struggle against heart disease and juvenile diabetes overtook Mark Ferris ’94. A beloved brother, son, classmate and friend, Mark’s strength in fighting diabetes taught those around him that life is not measured in years but in character. Mark’s character — of laughter, kindness, patience, and love — will be remembered always.
