Economics professor Timothy Fuerst dies at 54

| Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Timothy S. Fuerst, William and Dorothy O’Neill Professor of Economics at Notre Dame, died Tuesday morning at the age of 54 after battling stomach cancer for the past 10 months, the University said in a statement.

Fuerst’s research largely centered on monetary policy. He also served as senior economic adviser at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and taught for 19 years at Bowling Green State University, according to the press release.

“Tim was one of the cornerstones of a revived and extraordinarily successful economics program at Notre Dame. … We will miss him terribly, but we can be grateful for knowing him as we did and for his inspiring service to the University,” John McGreevy, the Dean of the College of Arts and Letters, said in the statement.

According to the University, arrangements for the funeral are pending.
