Death of Mathematics student Willem Obbens

With dismay we took note of the sudden death of Willem Obbens, student and student assistant in Mathematics, Leiden University.

Willem obtained a double bachelor degree in Mathematics and Computer Sciences at Leiden University. Since September, Willem was a Master student in Mathematics. He also worked as a student assistant at the Mathematical Institute. We know Willem as a cheerful, intelligent and involved student with his study and study association.

We are very sad to his untimely death, but grateful that Willem's talent and passion for mathematics could flourish with us.

Our sincere condolences go out to Willem's mother, brother, sisters, grandparents, family and friends.
