He was 40 years old Share this: BOSTON MA – September 13: The scene where David Jones, 40 an associate professor at the Boston University School of Public Health, died Saturday afternoon when he fell through stairs at the JFK/UMass T station on September 13, 2021 in Boston, Massachusetts. (Staff Photo By Matt Stone/MediaNews Group/Boston Herald) PUBLISHED: | UPDATED: September 13, 2021 at 12:52 p.m. A Boston University professor who was out for a run on Saturday died after falling through a gap in a set of stairs that have been closed for nearly two years near the JFK/UMass MBTA station in Dorchester, according to Massachusetts State Police. David Jones, 40, of Milton, died in the accident across from the T station at 599 Old Colony Ave., in Boston. The father of three children was an associate professor in the Boston University Department of Health Law, Policy and Management. “In truth I have no words to describe the devastation of this news,” Sandro Galea, dean of the BU School of Public Health, wrote to faculty and staff. “… David was a wonderful human being, living with integrity and a deep commitment to all we do,” the dean later added. “I have so loved all my interactions with David, I cannot really imagine what it means to not have David as part of our community.” Jones was out for a run on Saturday when he apparently fell through the stairs near the JFK/UMass station. State Police detectives assigned to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office were notified by Transit Police at around 1:30 p.m. of the death. A passerby had seen Jones’ body under a set of stairs, according to police. His body was laying on the ground under a stairway that connects Old Colony Road to the Columbia Road overpass. “Detectives observed a gap in the stairs above the victim, who had already been determined to be deceased,” State Police said. “Preliminary investigation revealed that the stairs had been deemed unsafe and closed for approximately 20 months. “The victim had gone for a run that day, and the incident occurred during his run, according to the investigation,” State Police added. “A wire fence was blocking the bottom entrance to the stairs, and a jersey barrier was blocking the top entrance.” In addition to the jersey barrier, there was also chain-link fencing at the Columbia Road entrance, police said. The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office did not immediately have a comment on Monday morning. A GoFundMe page has been created for Jones’ family. The page is called “ BUSPH GoFundMe for the Sacuto-Jones Family. ” “Our most wonderful colleague and friend David Jones passed away on Saturday, Sept. 11 in an accident,” the GoFundMe page reads. “David was beloved beyond words. This Go Fund Me page has been set up to raise money to support David’s wife, Sarah, and his three children, Olivia, Anne, and Thomas.” Sign up for email newsletters
