Katherine Patricia Bolka (April 21, 1989 – June 4, 2006)

On a sunny Saturday morning in February 2011, Nathan Krasnopoler, a sophomore at Johns Hopkins University, was riding in a bike lane near campus when he collided with a turning motorist and became trapped under her car. Denied oxygen, Nathan eventually died from his injuries. A graduate of Shoshana S. Cardin High School, Nathan grew up in Ellicott City, Maryland. He was a gifted student, with a zest for life, majoring in computer science at Hopkins.
