Our hearts are heavy today after finding out that a University of Miami senior passed away shortly after attending Ultra Music Festival this past Friday. According to the obituary, the death was caused by complications of a seizure.

Chief of Security for Ultra Music Festival Ray Martinez released a statement to the public regarding the death,

\”It is our understanding that Adam Levine, one of our patrons, was here on Friday night. … We can tell you that our security personnel noticed he was having difficulties and immediately called Miami Fire Rescue to get him medical attention. … Unfortunately he passed away at the hospital.\”

The University of Miami also shared a letter on Saturday night from the Vice President for Student Affairs. The letter reads:

Dear UM Students,

It is with deepest sadness and regret that I inform you of the loss of one of our students.  Adam C. Levine, a senior majoring in Political Science in the College of Arts & Sciences, passed away last night at Jackson Memorial Hospital.  The University has been in contact with Adam’s family, and we wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to them and to his many friends. Please keep them in your thoughts in the following days.

Truly beloved by all, Adam’s outgoing, caring personality and sense of humor was known to always make his friends smile. Adam was a member of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity where he served as a beloved brother and respected officer and leader in the Greek community.  With a remarkably joyful disposition, he enjoyed helping his fellow students. He was an active leader in Student Government, where he had served as a two-time Senator and Public Relations Vice Chair.  Adam also served as the Program Coordinator for the Freshman Leadership Council.  

He studied abroad in Australia last year, and recently, he had decided to apply to dental school.  

I know the UM community will join me in supporting Adam’s family and his many friends and honoring Adam’s memory during this difficult time.  Information regarding a memorial service will be shared through social media when details are confirmed.

As always, counseling and support services are available to all members of the UM community.

On behalf of all of us at EDM Chicago, we extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Adam Levine during this difficult time.
