Joseph M. Feller, a 59-year old environmental law professor at Arizona State, was killed when he was struck by a car when jogging on Monday. From Arizona State Dean Douglas Sylvester:
Joe cared deeply about the environment and about environmental justice,
and during his 25-plus years at ASU, he trained a generation of
environmental lawyers in Arizona. He taught water law and natural
resources law, and often led teams of students onto public lands and
waterways across Northern Arizona, adding meaning to what they’d learned
in the classroom.
Joe had a dazzling resume, having earned an undergraduate degree in physics and a law degree, magna
cum laude, from Harvard, where he was editor of the Harvard Law Review.
He also had a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California,
Berkeley. But Joe’s warm personality and easy manner outshone his
academic pedigree. ...
