Indiana University of Pennsylvania Grad Killed on Bike Was 'Hard- Working, Energetic'


Paterra, Paul, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Kristen Stormer was remembered by one of her Indiana University of Pennsylvania professors for her constant smile and happy disposition.

"I never saw her when she didn't have a smile on her face," said Randy Jesick, chairman of the school's journalism department. "I think she was really a genuinely happy person."

Stormer, 23, of Hollidaysburg in Blair County was killed about 1:20 p.m. Tuesday when her bicycle was struck by a commercial delivery truck in Ocean City, Md.

According to Ocean City police, Stormer was riding in a crosswalk at 33rd Street, but was crossing against the traffic signal.

Stormer graduated May 3 with a dual degree in journalism and English. Jesick said she was spending the summer in Ocean City working as a beach photographer.

"I know it's a cliche to say, but she was so full of life," Jesick recalled. "She was a very good student, a hard-working student, so energetic and just seemed so primed to get out there and use her intelligence, personality and talents in some communications capacity."

Josie Grimes, 22, of Bessemer in Lawrence County joined Stormer in Ocean City, where they got photography jobs with the same company. Grimes said they just wanted a fun summer together at the beach.

"She was the most amazing person. She would do anything for anybody," Grimes said. "It's going to be hard for a long time. She was the No. 1 person I could count on. I definitely feel like I lost a big part of my life.
