In Memoriam: Blaise Iradukunda

The GTFF would like to honor the life of a recently passed member of our community, Blaise Iradukunda. Blaise was a Presidential Scholar and an international GE from Rwanda who recently celebrated his graduation from the University of Oregon with his Master’s degree in Computer Science. Those who knew him best remember Blaise as an unwaveringly kind person, a dedicated scholar, a beloved teacher, and a cherished friend.

In addition to acknowledging this immense loss, we invite our community to help reunite Blaise with his grieving family after eight long years of separation. To read more about Blaise’s life and to contribute to his funeral and memorial costs, please visit
