Dieter Seltzer, a sophomore philosophy major and Collegiate Times opinion columnist, died Tuesday.
Dieter, along with his sister, Gabi Seltzer, wrote the “Relatively Speaking” column that debuted this year.
Without question, his tragic and untimely death saddens not only the entire opinions section, but also the newspaper as a whole. His section editors, Scott Masselli and Sean Simons, as well as his fellow staff members, will sincerely miss his kindness, good humor and incisive columns.
Dieter was both a friend and a sibling to Gabi, who greatly enjoyed writing the joint column with him.
With this in mind, we extend our sympathies to Dieter’s entire family as they cope with this loss. The world has lost a loving brother and wonderful person.
We have no doubt Dieter’s thoughts have already enriched the knowledge of this campus. We are saddened that his quest to make a positive impact on the world has been cut tragically short.
Dieter, may you rest in peace.
