Gov. Neil Abercrombie today shared the following remarks upon learning of the drowning of University of Hawaii student-athlete Jack Willis Wilson III:
"The thoughts of the people of Hawaii, as no doubt of every fan in Aloha Stadium tonight, are with the Wilson family. It is especially tragic when the life of one so young and with so much potential is ended so abruptly.
"Willis had returned home to Hawaii to contribute as a Rainbow Warrior and build his future as part of our university ohana. We extend our deepest Aloha to his family, friends and teammates, and we wish them some of his strength in the days ahead."
