Drexel University alumna Emily Selke was among the 150 passengers who died when a Germanwings flight crashed into the Alps Tuesday.
Selke was with her mother, Yvonne Selke, a Booz Allen Hamilton Inc contractor and contractor with the National Geo-Spatial Intelligence Agency, who also perished on the plane.
Emily, of Virginia, was a member of Gamma Sigma Sigma Zeta at Drexel.
"Emily always put others before herself and cared deeply for all those in her life," Zeta wrote on Facebook. "Emily will be greatly missed."
