14 year old James Tomas Roman was a gifted boy when it came to sports. Unfortunately he lost his life suddenly and sadly while he was away from his family.
The worst thing which can happen to any parent is to lose a child. When prevented to be there because the child is not a home is a tragedy.
It is difficult to say what could have been done to prevent the loss of such a young life. The cause of death is listed as Brain Aneurysm. We don't know if there was a second autopsy as his tragic death occured before the need for such when teenagers die in residential care was obivious.
Each year at the school they arrange a tournement in his name. Unlike so many teenagers who lost their lives in residential programs, his name is not forgotten not that it is any comfort for his parents.
May he rest in peace.
