CHICAGO, IL (November 17, 2009) – North Park Theological Seminary held a special chapel service this morning following the death of student Vernard Jones, 42, who died in his apartment Monday night of natural causes.

Jones, a North Park University graduate who helped form the school’s Gospel Choir, most recently served as the Viking football team chaplain while attending the seminary. He also was the seminary’s housing coordinator.

A student-led service of prayer and singing will be held at 5:30 p.m. tonight in Isaacson Chapel, and a communion memorial service will be held at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in Anderson Chapel.

He was a member of Calvary Covenant Church in Chicago.
