The UC Davis community is mourning the loss of Jan Conroy, the campus’ retired executive director of university communications, who died in a vehicle accident 
Sunday night near Walnut Grove.
According to the Merced Sun-Star, the 67-year-old Conroy was returning home from a Father’s Day visit with his daughter when his vehicle drifted off northbound Highway 160 and rolled several times down an embankment into a drainage ditch. The car then caught fire.
“We are of course very saddened by this loss. Jan worked at the university for 35 years, and he touched countless lives during that time as a colleague and as a friend,” said Karen Nikos-Rose, associate director of the news and media relations office at UCD. “We will be featuring remembrances of Jan in both our internal publication, Dateline, and on our website in coming days.”
Conroy spent nearly four decades at UCD as either a student or employee, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in graphic design in 1977 following his service in the U.S. Navy.
His contributions to UCD include working as a designer, editor and publications manager before becoming director of university communications. Nikos-Rose said he designed many of the logos 
commonly used by UCD.
Conroy helped shape every issue of UC Davis Magazine since it was first launched in 1983 as part of the university’s 75th-anniversary celebration.
“My tenure here has been a time of great challenges and great satisfaction,” Conroy wrote in his farewell edition of the magazine in June 2012. “With profound changes in almost all facets of publishing, the advent of the Web and great people coming and going, it’s been an ever evolving, never boring journey. And the fount of compelling stories has never slackened.”
