TESU Nursing Student Dies in Plane Crash

Nursing Caduceus

It is with a heavy heart that I extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Tanique Chue, a committed and caring TESU student in our Accelerated Nursing Program, whose life was tragically cut short in a plane crash on July 2. Alongside Tanique, we mourn the loss of her 7-year-old son, Sean Gardner, and the three other people onboard.

The loss of a loved one is a pain that cannot be adequately put into words. I offer my sincere sympathies to the grieving families as they navigate this unimaginable sorrow. May they find solace and strength in the embrace of their community and the fond memories they hold dear.

I understand that this tragedy has not only affected the families directly involved but also has sent shockwaves through the entire community of East Orange, N.J., our TESU nursing community, and those with connections to Jamaica. To all who have been touched by this heartbreaking event, know that our thoughts are with you.

With deepest sympathies,
President Merodie A. Hancock
