Was very shocked today to learn of Sean’s passing. I met with Sean in November 2018 and he gave me his time to talk about my Dad, who had recently received a diagnosis of dementia (early onset). Totally out of my comfort zone I turned for help - Sean enlightened me to our future as a family ahead - for that I am so grateful. Today I am also saddened to hear that he died - so very young, and with my short time with him - he was a very caring and compassionate person and helped me understand what lay ahead for my parents. So truly sorry for his family loss x

I am just finding out about Sean’s passing today and am deeply shocked and saddened by his passing from this world.

Sean was a WONDERFUL human being. He was a kindred spirit, as a colleague and friend. Sean made the world a better place to be in through the gift of his presence. Please know that Sean will be in my thoughts and prayers. I send you my deepest and most heartfelt condolences.

One of my favorite memories of Sean is when I attended an ARTZ training, meeting him for the first time. He led a museum tour at the Peabody for people living with dementia. One woman in particular was tentative and self-deprecating at the beginning of the tour. Because of Sean's thoughtful responses, grace, and openness, she transformed over the course of that hour. By the end, she was confidently sharing her thoughts and impressions, and you could see the entire group start to see each other as individuals with unique perspectives to share. What a magical and powerful experience. I am grateful for his contribution to the world.

There's been an outpouring of beautiful condolence notes, full of appreciation for Sean's humor and humane dedication to arts education, here in the Arts in Education program office at the Harvard Grad School of Education where he did his Ed.M. in 2012-13. We'll find a way to share those notes with his family, possibly in person at the service on Sunday. Condolences on behalf of his classmates for now. -Scott Ruescher, AIE program administrator
