In a message Monday to the Goucher community, president Kent Devereaux said Varela was a first-generation college student and graduated in 2021.
“During his time at Goucher as a political science major, he worked briefly in the President’s office, as well as on several political campaigns,” wrote Devereaux. “Only recently, Diego had opened a successful healthy juice business at the Towson Town Center.”
The business was named Rio Juice Bar, according to a post on Varela’s LinkedIn page.
“Diego’s death is a terrible tragedy, and the entire Goucher community mourns his loss,” wrote Devereaux. “Please join me in keeping Diego’s family and friends in your hearts during this most difficult time.”MORE NEWS: Man Shot In Joppatowne Saturday, Sheriff's Office Says
