Stephen E. Launius, #330, 1956 – 1981

Stephen Edward Launius was born on 23 Oct, 1956 in Jackson, MS. After graduating from William B. Murrah High School in 1974, he attended the University of Mississippi where he earned a degree as a Bachelor of Business Administration, Banking and Finance in 1978 along with a commission in the United States Air Force as a Second Lieutenant. In June 1978, he began to study at the Ole Miss Law School until 14 May, 1981 when he graduated. At this time the Law Faculty honored him with a Resolution, the first of its kind ever issued, for his extraordinary courage, discipline, dedication, unselfishness, and exemplary behavior with a cheerful attitude, in spite of the fact that since August 1979, he suffered the excruciating pains of terminal cancer. Steve passed away seven and a half months later after he graduated from Law School on 30 December, 1981
