Sad to report.

Sherri King, a Managing Director at the University of Virginia Investment Management who previously spent 15 years on Wall Street as a fixed-income specialist, has died. She was 39.

Bloomberg News reports that she died on September 7 at the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville, according to her husband, Patrick O’Connor. The cause was a blood clot in her brain.

King joined the Charlottesville-based endowment in March 2012 to head its fixed-income investments and oversee risk management strategies.

The fund had about $6bn in assets under management as of June 30, 2013, according to its website. It is the nation’s 19th-largest university endowment, according to the National Association of College and University Business Officers.

Sherri Jennifer King was born on December 3, 1974, in Wurzburg, Germany, while her father, Patrick King, was serving in the U.S. military, according to her husband. King’s father was a dentist and her mother, Georgina King, was a nurse. When King was a child, the family moved to Charlottesville, where she grew up.

Her first job on Wall Street was at Credit Suisse First Boston where she worked from 1997 to 2004. She subsequently worked at Bear Stearns and JPMorgan.
