Daniel (Dan, Danny, Dangy) Hollis lit up the room with his infectious smile and love for life. A 2018 graduate of Hopedale High School, Dan attended Emerson College where he studied Marking Communications and played on the Men's Lacrosse Team.
Early on Saturday, September 28th, 2019, Dan was seriously injured in a confrontation outside of a friend's apartment in Alston, MA. He was rushed to Brigham and Women's Hospital and underwent emergency surgery for trauma to his brain. Despite the best hopes of his medical team, it was determined after several days of observation that Dan would never regain consciousness. The damage to his brain also impacted his heart and lungs. Dan was removed from life support on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, with his mother (Jennifer Kelly), father (Jason Hollis), and sister (Kate Hollis) by his side.
While his life was cut far too short, Dan made an incredible impact everywhere he went. His commitment to his teammates, friends, and family was second to none. To honor his memory the Daniel J. Hollis Foundation, Inc. has been created. Please visit our website at: www.danieljhollisfoundation.org or on FaceBook @DJHFoundationInc.
