The 2022 Bobcat Pause Memorial Service was held on April 7th, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. in the LBJ Student Center. The date for the 2023 Bobcat Pause Memorial Service will be released later this year.

Bobcat Pause Memorial Service

Bobcat Pause is an annual event that honors members of the campus community who have recently passed away. The event is hosted by Student Foundation and the Student Involvement Office, and provides the Texas State University community an opportunity to remember our Bobcat family.

This list is a collaboration with the Dean of Students Office and Human Resources. While we try to be thorough, we realize that we do make the occasional, inadvertent omission. If you know of a student, faculty, staff, or retired faculty/staff that passed away between March 1st, 2021 and February 28th, 2022 that is not included on this list, please email

Please visit the Dean of Students Office In Memoriam page for a current list of students honored in the 2021-2022 academic year.
