The source is legitimate. I seriously wonder if the article is a joke.

The guy is real.

I do think this is real. Other reputable sites have it as well. The victim's name is rather ironic. The fact that he jumped twice. Wow.

He was close to finishing a PhD at UIUC. That's not a shabby school.

Wow. I can't imagine what it must feel like to fail at suicide, and reattempt.

CHAMPAIGN — The man who died after jumping from a high-rise apartment building in the campus area was a graduate student at the University of Illinois.
According to university records, Jeronymo Pereira, 30, of Urbana, was a graduate student in civil engineering.
Champaign County Coroner Duane Northrup said that Mr. Pereira, 30, was pronounced dead at 1:50 p.m. Thursday at Carle Foundation Hospital.
The cause of death was multiple traumatic injuries, Northrup said, adding the case is being investigated as a suicide. He said there would be no autopsy but toxicology tests would be done.
Champaign police Sgt. Jim Rein said the man had been operated on at Carle after jumping Thursday morning from an upper floor of the Burnham 310 building on West Springfield Avenue between Third and Fourth streets.
Rein said the man was believed to have family in the community who were at the hospital but declined to speak to police. He did not live in the building.
“He busted out a window ... on the west side. He fell on to the adjoining four-story building below, then he got up and jumped off that building, too. How in the world he gets up is beyond all of us,” said Rein.
Rein said witnesses saw the man jump. He used a fire extinguisher to break out a window in a common hallway of the 18th floor.
“It’s a secure building. Our best guess is he waited for someone to come out a door and he followed in behind them,” Rein said.
Rein said there were “three good eyewitnesses” but police spoke to about a dozen, including residents on the floor from which the man jumped and three people who were getting ready for an Easter egg hunt in Scott Park across Springfield Avenue to the south.
Police had Springfield closed for at least two hours after the incident while building maintenance workers removed the glass.
“That wind wasn’t helping anything. It blew glass everywhere,” Rein said.
Rein said two detectives saw the man before he was taken to the hospital and said he could speak.

That is the dedication of a PhD student. That is both cruelly humorous and cruelly serious. It seems like a waste. His publication record looked good. Who knows what he had going on in his life.

Apparently his girlfriend just broke up with him. I feel bad for her since she's going to live the rest of her life thinking it was her fault.

I didn't actually see it happen nor did I go try and gawk when I heard it did but it's a legitimate story.

UIUC is a tough school. I'm here to get my M.S.M.E. and then get a job and while it's not that bad for me, I do see a ton of other engineering students who are always close to the breaking point so it's not that unbelievable that someone finally snapped.
