Sigma Nu Fraternity brother and University of Iowa junior Andrew Mogni died Sunday morning.
Mogni, a graduate of St. Petronille Benet High School, reportedly died at 11:15 a.m., according to the St. Petronille Church Facebook page.

The Glen Ellyn, Illinois, native suffered a 40-foot fall early on Jan. 14, according to a UI release after the accident.

Trevor Heimke, a member of Sigma Nu, told The Daily Iowan Mogni’s funeral would be held in Chicago, but a time and date had not been set as of Monday evening.

A candlelight vigil is also being planned at the IMU that will be open to the public. He said details for the event would be released on the fraternity social-media accounts and through a formal statement from Sigma Nu President Mark Parise.

Mogni was moved back to the United States from Italy to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for further treatment. According to a UI International Programs release, the police in Italy are still investigating the fall.

The release also said students can leave wishes for the family under the Twitter hashtag #PrayforMogni.

Sigma Nu is raising money for Mogni’s family, and the fundraiser can be found by visiting gofundme.com/kickinitforacure. The fundraiser also benefits Sigma Nu fraternity member and UI sophomore Rodric Jackson, who was diagnosed with brain cancer.
