Student obituary

Princeton NJ — University officials have learned from the family of senior Manzili Davis of Chicago that he was found deceased in California.

Davis’ family told administrators that the family had been concerned he was missing, and they were informed April 19 by California authorities that Davis apparently took his life while on a trip to East Palo Alto, Calif.

Davis came to Princeton from Mount Carmel High School, where he graduated with honors in May 2002. He was the president of the National Honor Society and was a member of the Scholastic Bowl team, math competition team, forensic society and the cross country team.

At Princeton, Davis was completing his degree this year in the politics department. He was a Mathey College peer adviser as well as a member of the Whig-Cliosophic Society and Prelaw Society.

He is survived by his parents, Roella Davis and Jerome Davis, and elder sisters Johari Davis and Malaika Henderson.

The University is planning a memorial service to be held on campus at a later date.
