 Matthew Jones, senior finance and accounting major, died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident last weekend. He was 27 years old. Jones leaves behind his wife, Noelle, and three children.

Jones, who transferred to Loyola in 2010, served in the U.S. Army as an Army Ranger for seven years prior to enrolling at Loyola to finish his education.

According to a university-wide email, funeral services have been planned for March 3 at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home in New Orleans. Visitation will be held from 12 to 2 p.m., followed by a ceremony honoring Jones' life.

Loyola is discussing plans for an on-campus memorial for Jones.
