In Memory of: Nate Miller ’08
Nate Miller ’08 proposed to his girlfriend Jessica Kukla ’08 in the perfect place: the start line of a collegiate cycling race.
Cycling was one of the passions the two shared through their undergrad years at UNH and beyond, says Jessica.
“Cycling took us all over the world, opening so many doors for us through that shared passion that transcended language barriers and cultural differences,” she says.
On May 17, 2017, Nathan was on his way to work, cycling in Turlock, California, when he was struck and killed by a motorist.
Now, Jessica, along with Nate’s Wildcat friends, are honoring his legacy by making memorial gifts in his name to the UNH Cycling program. Through their generosity, Nate’s legacy will live even beyond them, with his Wildcat friends, fellow UNH Cycling athletes, and past cyclists who know how much he loved the sport.
“He died doing what he loved, so it is an honor to Nate to give back to the organization that meant so much to us,” says Jessica. He and Jessica have a daughter, Giselle.
