Alexis Saccoman ’04, of Aventura, Fla.; May 30. In addition to running his private psychology practice, he was also program director from 2013 to 2017 of AFY iTHRIVE, an early intervention program for teens struggling with substance use and minor criminal offenses.

Every September between 2004 and 2017 Alexis returned to Brown to present transformative Sex at Brown lectures, one of the most popular workshops on campus, and an endowed lecture will be established in his name. At the time of his death he was focusing on a book project with iTHRIVE. A memorial service will take place on May 23, 2019, to coincide with his 15-year reunion. He enjoyed learning languages (he spoke five), video games, swimming, meditation, exercise, and traveling. He is survived by his parents; a daughter; a brother; and ex-wife Michal Fire.
