2004 UST Law graduate Cory Wessman received the Alumni Living the Mission Award for 2013. In December of 2009, Cory and his wife Heather started a nonprofit called “The Micah Wessman Foundation” following the sudden death of their oldest son, Micah Wessman. The foundation maintains a website called Hope for the Mourning (www.hopeforthemourning.org), which provides Biblical support and encouragement to parents grieving the death of an infant or young child, regardless of the religious background of the parents. Hope for the Mourning provides grieving parents a care package and serves as a resource and support for grieving parents. Wessman was recognized with the Alumni Living the Mission Award during a ceremony on April 15, 2013.
