More sad news in the aftermath of the Boston marathon bombings: the Wall Street Journal reports that a Johns Hopkins School of Nursing alum and her husband both lost their left legs below the knee as a result of injuries sustained in the blast. Jessica Kensky, a 2009 graduate, lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts with her husband, Patrick Downes. Kensky worked as a nurse at Johns Hopkins Hospital for two years after graduating, and is currently employed by Mass General. A fund has been set up for the couple; send messages of good will and/or donations here.
