It is with a heavy heart that we report Andrew Mogni passed away on Sunday morning, April 5, 2015, at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Andrew sustained injuries after a fall in Rome on January 14 and put up a valiant fight while receiving medical care.
Our thoughts are with the Mogni family and members of the UI community who knew and loved him.
Supportive counseling services are available to students both in Rome and Iowa City. Students on the UI campus may contact the UI University Counseling Service to request an appointment. UI students attending the John Cabot University program can set up appointments on campus in Rome.
We wish to extend a heartfelt thank you for the support and caring many members of the UI community have demonstrated to Andrew’s family and friends over the past few months. Thank you for offering respect and support for the Mogni family. Please feel free to continue to leave your well-wishes with the family in the comments below.

In lieu of flowers the Mogni family asks that donations be made to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Chicago. In showing his great compassion for others every summer for the last 5 years Andrew volunteered at the Annual Muscular Dystrophy Camp, IL. This week long annual camp gives children suffering with MDA the opportunity to go to camp and have fun. It also gives their caregivers a much needed break. From the time the children arrive at camp they each have an assigned volunteer who takes care of their every need from bathing to feeding them 24 hours a day. It is an exhausting week for the volunteers but it was the one week of his summer that Andrew looked forward to and gladly gave his time and energy to. Donations are also used to fund families that can't afford the cost of camp. MDA and its campers was very near and dear to Andrew’s heart.
