I only recently got to meet and work with Cameron. In only knowing him briefly, he will be sorely missed.
I got to know Cameron a few years ago as an online student at UIS. I was one of his advisors and the instructor for one of his undergraduate courses. I met him in person last May during the graduation festivities when he completed his bachelor’s and was going to continue his education with the Management Information Systems graduate degree. Cameron was a very determined and congenial person. He will be missed by UIS (his fellow classmates, instructors and staff). My prayers will be lifted up to his family and their loss.

I am deeply sad to hear the passing of my class- and teammate, Cameron. My sore condolences to the family.
You were an Inspiring and very Intelligent Class Mate. Thank you getting Group 7 in MIS 513 working together as a true team. You will be sorely missed. God Keep you in his Arms.
