LIVE: Officials hold news conference on death of Acting Temple President JoAnne Epps

PHILADELPHIA — JoAnne Epps, Temple University’s acting president, died on Tuesday after falling ill during a service on campus.

The incident happened around 2 p.m. during the Charles L. Blockson Memorial Service on campus.

A university spokesperson says Epps was taken to Temple University Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

A news conference will be held at 4:30 p.m. where officials are expected to reveal more.

Epps joined Temple’s faculty in 1985. She was appointed law school dean in 2008 and was named provost in 2016, a position she held until 2021.

The board held the unanimous vote in April naming Epps as acting president following the resignation of Jason Wingard.
