Sharing is Caring!

The family of a 19-year-old UC Berkeley freshman is mourning his death after he was found unresponsive in a college dorm, possibly due to a drug overdose.

Marco Troper, who was in his second semester at the university, died Tuesday, his grandmother Esther Wojcicki posted on social media. Troper, a math major, was the son of former YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, who stepped down from her role last year after 25 years with Google, which owns the video streaming service.

“Tragedy hit my family yesterday,” Esther Wojcicki wrote online. “My beloved grandson Marco Troper, age 19 passed away yesterday. Our family is devastated beyond comprehension. Marco was the most kind, loving, smart, fun and beautiful human being.”

The grandmother told the Palo Alto Daily Post and SFGate that Troper’s death may have been as a result of a drug overdose.

When reached via email Friday, UC Berkeley spokesperson Janet Gilmore confirmed the university had a “student death earlier this week.” Gilmore said a student residing at the Clark Kerr Campus was found unresponsive on Tuesday around 4:23 p.m. Berkeley firefighters attempted lifesaving measures but the student was pronounced dead. There were no signs of foul play and an investigation into the death is underway, Gilmore said.

Esther Wojcicki said Marco had a “strong community of friends” and was a part of the Zeta Psi fraternity. She also said he had been excelling academically at Berkeley.
