THE FLATS – Thomas Lozano, a Georgia Tech alumnus and longtime Georgia Tech Athletic Association staff member, died on Thursday following a brief illness. He was 38.
Lozano graduated with honors from Georgia Tech in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in management. He joined the GTAA staff in 2004 and served several roles within the athletics department, including in student services, compliance and communications.
He was also one of the Yellow Jackets’ biggest fans and was a staple at Georgia Tech athletics events for the better part of more than two decades. Most importantly, he was a true friend to the many Georgia Tech athletics staff members, student-athletes and fans that he came in contact with over the years.
“Today is a sad day for Georgia Tech,” director of athletics Todd Stansbury said. “Thomas was a huge part of our GTAA family. His dedication to Tech as an alumnus, a staff member and a fan was unrivaled. He leaves behind an enduring legacy of great courage and character that has touched everyone he has ever come in contact with, including all of the student-athletes and athletics staff that were fortunate to know him. On behalf of the entire Georgia Tech athletics family, I offer our most sincere condolences to Thomas’ family and his countless friends.”
A moment of silence will be held prior to Thursday’s 8 p.m. men’s basketball game versus NC State at McCamish Pavilion.
