EDIT (2007-12-25 10:00 PM): This Denver Post article has an update on the condition of Chase’s sister, Katy:

She is conscious and doing well, said Parr’s niece, Kathryn McAllister.

It also contains the official account of the accident, as well as details on the John Parr and Sandy Widener Civic Leadership Award, which has been created to “recognize people exemplifying John and Sandy’s commitment to and passion for improving the metro Denver community.” (Justin)

EDIT: President Roth reflects on the tragedy in his blog

    Jesus. This is horrible. I didn’t even know her but a bunch of girls on the rugby team said she was the coolest person ever. And she apparently baked cookies for people on her floor all the time. This is so unfair.

    A comment from a friend of Chase in Denver — Chase loved Wesleyan. She had been accepted to many great schools before picking Wes — and never regretted it. She loved you, the students; her classes; her instructors — everything. Just thought you’d want to know.

    Why would you say something like that? Her parents were wearing their seatbelts and they were killed. Her sister wasn’t and she’s going to be OK. It was just a horrible accident – please don’t add “what if”s to this, OK? It’s already painful enough to process.

    God Bless the Parr family … may Chase and her parents rest in peace. Chase, while I did not know her well, always had a smile on … It’s hard to think about how much we waste our lives away in the face of such uncertain tomorrows

    I didn’t know her personally but we had a class together and she would always smile whenever we passed each other – she had a lovely, sincere, warm smile and seemed like an absolutely lovely person. My prayers are with her sister, her friends at Wes and at home. Rest in peace.

    Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper made this statement: “We cherish our memories of John and Sandy and their daughter Chase. They made us better people. They made Denver a better city, and Colorado a better state. We struggle to comprehend this loss, and our hearts go out to Katy.”It couldn’t be put better.
