SUNY Broome Remembers Wes Warren

Students and faculty at SUNY Broome continue to mourn the loss of Wesley Warren, a professor in the school's Department of Criminal Justice and Homeland Security.

Warren died of a heart attack in his sleep Saturday night. Warren was well known on campus for his community efforts. he led the school's efforts each year to send care packages to soldiers overseas. He also co-founded an annual sleep-out event on campus that has raised thousands of dollars for the homeless.

"He just had such a high level of energy and enthusiasm. He was so encouraging and he was so giving and caring, working with him with our Criminal Justice Association outreach programs," said a former student of Wes Warren's, Rae Palmer-Jones.

"His legacy will continue for a long time because of the thousands of students whose lives he touched. And that's saying something that any teacher hopes for on his best day, and even on his worst days. He had many more best days," said Doug Garnar, SUNY Broome Professor of History and Social Science.

Warren was a former police officer and criminal investigator. He leaves behind two children. He was 49 years old.
