Edward Aschoff on a mountain.

When ESPN college football reporter Edward Aschoff suddenly passed away on his 34th birthday in December following a month-long battle with pneumonia, it led to a lot of tributes. But many still had some questions about just what happened to Aschoff, and his fiancée Katy Berteau (who previously shared a tribute thread about him on his Twitter account on Dec. 26) answered some of those with a thread Wednesday, revealing that doctors found he also had non-Hodgkins lymphoma. That thread also includes information about how to donate to a scholarship fund at the University of Florida (Aschoff’s alma mater) in his name. Here are her tweets:

That’s a very sweet thread from Berteau, and it definitely helps provide some extra information on just what happened with Aschoff. And even more importantly, it provides some details on how to contribute to the memorial fund in his name, which will help other prospective journalists at his alma mater. Aschoff will be long remembered, as the tributes to him show, and this memorial fund is one more way to continue his legacy.
