Our son, Kevin, is a close friend and Fraternity brother of Matt's. Matt came up to our home last summer to help Kevin celebrate his 21st birthday and we had the honor of meeting him. What a respectful and handsome young man! - a tribute to his upbringing. I know Kevin, as well as all his PIKE brothers and friends and family at Rowan have heavy hearts today. God bless Matt and his family. He will be remembered with joy and love....Michelle, Rudy Kevin and Jacquelyn Schultz.

I did not have the privilege of knowing Matthew, but he was clearly a well-respected and loved young man. That is truly the mark of wonderful parents. I can't imagine there is a pain more far-reaching or deeper than losing a child. My own parental heart and prayers go out to you at this most difficult time.
