‘He was like a father to us:’ Students, staff at James Madison Academic Campus celebrate Mr. Cory Moore

MILWAUKEE -- Students and staff at James Madison Academic Campus on Wednesday, May 9 celebrated the life of Cory Moore.

The 35-year-old education advisor died from a virus three months ago. He spent his career preparing students for college and life after graduation.

Those who knew him say he did much more than that.

"He wasn't just a mentor. He was like a father to all of us. He never left. We know that because his spirit never left us. He kept us going and going," said Amyia Wright, senior.
