Memorial Today for Nathaniel "Nacho" Cordova

On monday,  we posted the sad news with very heavy hearts at the loss of a friend of CAUSA and an ally in the cause for social justice. Our friend, Nathaniel Cordova died on Saturday in a motorcycle accident.

Nacho, as he was known by all who knew him, was a professor and the chair of Rhetoric and Media Studies at Willamette University. He was a strong supporter of CAUSA, attending many of our May Day celebrations and events and being a vocal advocate for civil rights and social justice. He was a loving father and devoted husband and there is no shortage of people whose lives he has touched as a professor, a colleague, a friend and a fellow human being.
We mourn the untimely departure of our friend, but we celebrate his life and good work. We pray for his family and wish them comfort in this time of great loss.

UPDATED: Due to the outpouring of support, a memorial service will be held today (Wednesday, July 20th) for Nacho at 3:00 in Hudson Hall (Roger's Music Center) on the Willamette University Campus.

In honor of his memory, the family is asking for contributions to be made to one of the funds in the areas that best represent Nacho's children’s passions. Link here for those details:

More details will be posted at as they come available.
