Celebrating a life well-lived
Touro University Nevada will come together to share memories of Dr. James “Mac” McMurrin. The memorial service will be held May 17 at 4 p.m. Green Valley Ranch Resort, Estancia Ballrooms F & G.
Dr. Mac has been a beloved fixture on the Touro campus since we opened our doors in 2004. Mac’s joy and passion for teaching was always evident and his door was always open for students. Even as he shared the challenges faced with his cancer treatment, he saw this as a way to put a real face to the patient for his students, and knew that he could have a meaningful impact on helping students become compassionate and caring healthcare providers. I know that the students will always remember him for the meaningful and honest approach he took to their education.
Likewise, all of the faculty and staff will miss his good-natured spirit, his open-hearted enthusiasm and his unwavering commitment to Touro. For Dr. Mac, family was the most important thing. Whether it was his wife Debbie, his children, or any of us who crossed paths with him, we were all a part of Mac’s extended family, and he will forever be a part of our Touro family.
