In November 2011, we lost a dear friend, teacher and colleague when our friend and UNC graduate student and instructor Jelena Stojakovic passed away after a year-long battle with leukemia.
A celebration of Jelenaâ€™s life will be held on Friday, Feb. 3, and a warm invitation is extended to those in the broader community who knew Jelena and would like to come celebrate her legacy.
Join friends and colleagues to celebrate the life and spirit of Jelena Stojakovic on Friday, Feb. 3 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Graduate Student Center at 211 West Cameron Ave. in Chapel Hill. Come and share food and drink and stories of Jelenaâ€™s impact on the lives of those who knew her and the community as a whole. The program will begin with several speakers sharing their thoughts and memories of Jelena, followed by an â€œopen micâ€ time in which all are welcome to speak. The memorial will conclude with a short reception.
Following the reception, join in a toast to Jelena at The Crunkleton, 320 W. Franklin St., Chapel Hill.
