Chris Wenzler Death – Dead: Chris Wenzler Obituary, Cause of Death | Longtime JCU Sports Information Director Chris Wenzler has passed away. He died on June 23, 2020.
Chris Wenzler Cause of Death is Myeloma. He died on Tuesday following a two-and-a-half-year battle with multiple myeloma at the age of 52 years old.
A tireless promoter of John Carroll University and its student-athletes, Wenzler’s legacy in University Heights began as an undergraduate, where he studied Communications, honed his writing skills at The Carroll News, and continued the family legacy started by his father, Martin Wenzler ‘64.
He was named to the Sports Information post just four months after receiving his diploma in 1990, and quickly became a fixture in the athletic department. In August 2008, Wenzler was given additional responsibilities as John Carroll’s first Assistant Athletic Director for Communications.
For his extraordinary efforts on behalf of JCU Athletics and his service to John Carroll and its students, he was elected to the JCU Athletic Hall of Fame in 2019.
His contributions to John Carroll pale in comparison to his role as a mentor to hundreds of student workers who count him as a teacher, advocate, confidant, and friend.
Wenzler is survived by his wife, Melissa, and children, Madeline and Oliver.
