in Memoriam: Jairam Rao '19

The BLS community is invited to A Celebration of Jairam’s Life on Thursday, July 11.

It is with much sadness that we share news of Jairam Rao '19's passing with the Boston Latin School community. He tragically lost his life on July 2, while rock climbing on a family trip in Brazil.

Jairam was headed to Boston University this fall with interest in the sciences and history. He was deeply involved with Junior Classical League, played drums and guitar, was an avid woodworker, and loved the outdoors. His three siblings include his brother Diego, who graduated from BLS in 2018.

Members of our student support team will be on site at BLS Monday, July 8, between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. for anyone in the BLS community who would like to come together and process this significant loss.

His family has informed us that a celebration of Jairam’s life will be held at
Lehman, Reen & McNamara Funeral Home (63 Chestnut Hill Ave., Brighton, MA) on Thursday, July 11, from 4 to 7 p.m.. More details are listed on the funeral home’s website.
