WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- The 22-year-old UW Stevens Point student that was found dead by his roommate last Sunday is being remembered Friday.
Jordan C. Peterson was a senior biology pre-med student originally from the Markesan area. Many of his family members are now in central Wisconsin, prompting the family to hold the services in Wausau. Peterson’s memorial service is being held at Highland Community Church in Wausau at noon, with visitation starting at 10 o’clock.
Police believe his death may have been caused by a drug overdose, but they are awaiting toxicology results from his autopsy to confirm that.
