Remembering Chris Weigl

Christopher Weigl's profile picture is from his website www.christopherweigl.com.

We lost a member of our Community Advocate family yesterday when 23 year old Christopher Weigl was hit and killed as he rode his bicycle on Commonwealth Avenue. Chris, who grew up in Southborough, was pursuing a master's degree in photojournalism at Boston University but to be honest, that degree wasn’t even necessary. Chris already had what it took to be a great journalist. His talent was evident in the photos and the stories he contributed to our paper. He was curious by nature, and so affable people would open up to him, and he had an “eye” which allowed him to artfully capture a subject or event with his camera.

His family has lost someone irreplaceable and journalism has lost a sure-to-be shining star.

Chris worked for the Community Advocate over the past year. Here are some links to some of his work.
