University of Southern California student Samuel Levine has died in an accident while on spring break in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico  He was 22.

"Our deepest sympathies are with Sam’s parents and family members," said Steve A. Kay, dean of the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, in a statement.

Levine, a junior majoring in psychology, died on March 12. He fell from the balcony of his hotel room while on vacation with other USC students and members of his fraternity, Sigma Chi, according to CBS Los Angeles.

In 2012, Levine worked as a student marketer for USC baseball’s program and as an intern at several companies, including Wasserman Media Group and Lineage Interactive, which are sports and entertainment marketing agencies.according to his LinkedIn profile.

Sports, apparently, played a big part in Levine's life: in 2009, he was hired to coach the freshman and sophomore boys basketball team at Oak Park High School, where he graduated from and where he was a star player, according to a 2009 article from The Acorn

Synagogues from the Oak Park area—which falls in Ventura County but is adjacent to Agoura Hills—heard about Levine’s death, but the Journal has yet to determine which synagogue Levine’s family are members of, assuming they are members of one.
