A Statement from the President on the Untimely Passing of Dr Nestor Chan

October 30, 2020

Dr Chan

It is with a great sense of sadness that I inform you of the death of our colleague, Dr Nestor Chan of the FEA. From the reports that I have received this occurred in the last couple hours.

Dr Chan was an outstanding leader of the Faculty of Education and Arts and was the immediate past Dean of the Faculty. He led this Faculty with distinction and I had the honor of working very productively with him as your President. I appreciated the knowledge and impact he and our University brought to bear on the Educational Sector of Belize and the respect in which he was held in this sphere. His passing is not only a tremendous loss to our University but to Belize.

On behalf of the University of Belize, its Board of Trustees and all its students, Alumni, Faculty and Staff and personally, I wish to extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Martha Chan, children Judith Rivas, Jocelyn Cassanova, Janel Chan and Nestor Chan Jr, and his family on his untimely passing.

May his soul rest in eternal peace.

University of Belize
