Joseph (Joey) Glynn


Message from President Gloria Cordes Larson:
Dear Members of the Bentley Community,
It is with great sadness that I am writing to inform you about the death of a member of our community. Joseph (Joey) Glynn, who just completed his freshman year and was a member of our basketball team, collapsed Monday evening while playing basketball during an Amateur Athletic Union men’s game (a recreational league) in Watertown, Mass. He died later that night at Mount Auburn Hospital.
The Watertown Police tell us the cause of death has not yet been determined.
Our deepest sympathies go out to Joey’s family, friends, classmates, teammates and professors as they struggle to comprehend the sudden loss of such a vibrant young life. Joey was 19 years old and from Abington, Mass.  He graduated from Cardinal Spellman High School in 2012 where he was a two-time Boston Globe and Boston Herald All-Scholastic.  Joey was a two-year captain in basketball, captain of the football team during his senior year, and lettered in baseball.  As a junior he had the distinction of playing at Gillette Stadium and TD Garden for the high school Super Bowl.  In his senior year he led Spellman to the Super Bowl for a second time.
Members of our staff are in contact with Joey’s family and are providing support for his teammates. Joey is survived by his parents, Joseph and Susan Glynn, and his four sisters, Kelly, Sarah, Stephanie and Ashley.  Joey’s father is a 1987 MBA alumnus.  
I know that our Bentley community will join together during this difficult time and support each other. Please reach out to those who are mourning Joey.  And also remember that the Student Counseling Center, the Spiritual Life Center, the Center for Health and Wellness, and Office of Student Affairs are open as places of support and comfort.  Information about a campus memorial will be shared as soon as it is available.
