Son of former YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki found dead in UC Berkeley dorm

Authorities said the son of former YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki was discovered dead in a Berkeley dorm.

UC Berkeley told Fox News Digital that Wojcicki's 19-year-old son Marco Troper died this week.

University Police said that a Clark Kerr dorm student was found unconscious at 4:23 p.m. Tuesday.

"Berkeley Fire Department notified UCPD that they were attempting life-saving measures on the victim," the university said. "UCPD responded, and Berkeley Fire Department pronounced the person deceased."

The scene showed no foul play, according to authorities.

Troper's grandma, Esther Wojcicki, called him "the most kind, loving, smart, fun and beautiful human being." on Facebook.

"Our family is devastated beyond comprehension," the grandma added.

Esther Wojcicki reported Troper was "just getting starting [sic] on his second semester of his freshman year."

Marco died too soon. She commented that we are grieved by the possibilities and life experiences he would lose and we will miss together. "Marco, we all love you and miss you more than you will ever know."

The grieving grandma told SFGATE Troper was high.

"He ingested a drug, and we don’t know what was in it," stated. "One thing we do know, it was a drug."

She and Dennis Troper have four more children. Wojcicki was YouTube's CEO from 2014 until 2023.

The University of California Police Department has not responded to Fox Business.
