Juan had transferred to the West Oahu campus in 2019 as a junior after attending Honolulu Community College. A university spokeswoman on Wednesday said they did not have Juan’s age or hometown. (Juan’s Facebook page states that his family was originally from Badoc, Ilocos Norte.)

“As a first-generation immigrant, his drive to work in the STEM field to make his family proud became clear as he spoke passionately about his degree and what it could afford him and his family,” the statement issued Tuesday said.

“Because of his student leadership at both Honolulu Community College and UH West Oahu, he was recently nominated to be a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success.”

The statement said Juan had a “quiet, steady manner that revealed a powerful motivation to succeed as a student.”

The statement said Juan was not on campus and did not expose the university community to the virus.

“He took his studies very seriously and even in his last stages of fighting Covid-19, he worried about class assignments and constantly asked his father how he could make up for the work he was missing,” the statement said. “We are proud to have been touched by him in this life.”
