Dr Saskia Murk Jansen, 1957-2024

It is with great sorrow that we announce that our friend and colleague Dr Saskia Murk Jansen passed away suddenly at home on Monday 19 February. Our thoughts are with her family at this difficult time.

Saskia was a Senior Member, former Fellow (1989 – 2010) and former Praelector, latterly Fellow and Development Director of Peterhouse. She is still fondly remembered at Robinson and by alumni for her grace, charm and dedication to all she undertook, with her characteristic rigour and serenity.

Her loss will be felt across the College and wider community.  There is a book of condolence available in Peterhouse College Chapel for anyone who would like to add to it. If you are unable to visit the College messages can be sent using the link below and will be added to the book.
