A message on the passing of Baltimore entrepreneur Pava LaPere

Wendy Bolger, founding director of the Simon Center on Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Loyola University Maryland, issued this statement on the death of Pava LaPere:

"The Loyola University Maryland community is deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Ecomap CEO, Pava LaPere. Ms. LaPere served on the newly established advisory board for the Simon Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship. She was a phenomenally accomplished CEO and innovator, and an inspiration and a friend to so many. She always led with values first, and was deeply committed to Baltimore, and the promises of technology and entrepreneurship for all. Loyola University Maryland joins the communities Ms. LaPere built at Ecomap and across the city in grieving the loss of a true star. She and her family are in our prayers."

LaPere will be the Mass intention at the 11 a.m. Mass on Sunday, Oct. 8, in Alumni Memorial Chapel.
