Sigma Alpha Epsilon will hold a private dinner tonight to remember a fraternity member who died this week.
Senior Read Hortenstine, 23, died Friday afternoon at Baylor All Saints Hospital. His cause of death is pending, according to Tarrant County medical examiner records.
The dinner will take place at the SAE chapter house.
“It will be a time for everyone to come together and share any stories or thoughts they had about him,” said Stafford Sadler, SAE president.
Kathy Cavins-Tull, vice chancellor for student affairs, acknowledged Hortenstine’s death in an email to TCU Friday.
“We are saddened by the loss of a valued member of our community and our thoughts and prayers are with Read’s family and friends at this time,” Cavins-Tull wrote.
“We are all deeply saddened by the loss of Read,” Sadler said Friday. “If there’s anything this semester has taught us, it is to appreciate our friends and family.”
According to a Fort Worth Police report, officers received a call on Thursday that Hortenstine was unresponsive and not breathing. Officers were then dispatched to his home on Lambert Avenue around 1 p.m., and he was transferred to the hospital by MedStar.
Hortenstine, a Houston resident, was a general studies major, according to the TCU email database.
