Remembering Dennis Cokely (1946-2018)

It is with extremely heavy hearts that we share the news of our beloved Dennis Cokely’s unexpected passing. Dennis was CALI’s Principal Investigator and Director of the ASL Program at Northeastern University. We are heartbroken and struggling to find the right words to express the depth of our sadness and grief. 

One of the most beautiful facets of this community is our ability to come together in times of need. We celebrate together during the highs and we hold tight to one another during the lows. Please reach out to one another. This news will undoubtedly find many of us in need of support.

This loss leaves a major void, not only for CALI, but in our hearts. Dennis was a wonderful boss, teacher, mentor, and friend, and we will miss him dearly.
