The KU community lost both a student and friend when Charles “Charlie” Eskin, 23, died unexpectedly on Nov. 2, 2014.

Eskin grew up in Pennside, Pa. In 2010, he graded from Antietam High School. At KU, he was a communication studies major and will be awarded his B.A. posthumously.

According to an article in The Reading Eagle, Eskin was the son of Diana Gerson and Steve Eskin and the brother of Alex Eskin. He leaves behind nephews: Michael Gerson, married to Susan Schubert, Robbie Gerson, married to Fran Gerson, Danny Gerson and cousins Julia, Cameron and Melissa.

According to the article, “Charlie was a young man with an incredibly strong kind heart, polite attitude, quick wit and friendly demeanor as has been expressed by his many friends. He always had a smile, a laugh and a kind word of encouragement for everyone.”

Contributions can be made to any organization or club that would have meant something to Eskin. Online condolences may be made at http://www.beanfuneralhomes.com.

Counseling services are available on campus to anyone that may be struggling with the passing of Charles Eskin. These services are located in 122 Beck Hall, open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Walk-ins are welcome.
