Who was Dean Mason?
Dean Anthony Anthony Mason was from Vineland, New Jersey (Cumberland County). He studied Music at the College of Performing Arts, Rowan University after transferring to Cumberland County College. He was engaged in various social clubs including True Colors through the Office of Social Justice, Inclusion & Conflict Resolution, and Anime Club. Dean was an Orientation Assistant for the Office of Orientation and Student Leadership Programs during his time at Rowan.
He also worked as a sales associate at the Express (a clothing store) at the Deptford Mall. He first became a musician around the time he entered high school, having picked up the guitar in the winter of his eighth-grade year. By the time he was a sophomore, he felt that music was his destiny, as it fulfilled him in a way that other academic subjects never came close to doing. He expanded his horizons as high school went on, taking his first courses in music theory and beginning to play the contrabass just before he began his senior year.
About Dean Mason
He eventually took a liking to other subjects as the student in him grew, but music always remained what he felt was his primary calling. He entered college as a music composition major due to his fascination and facility with music theory, but years later added a dual specialization in classical music performance upon being instilled with a proper musician’s work ethic by his contrabass professor, Douglas Mapp.
Dean was a loving son to his parents Gina and Wayne, and a caring brother to Nick and Cody. He joined the Rowan bass studio in 2014 and was also a member of Youth To Youth International, Eastern States Family, and the Vineland, New Jersey community. His involvement with Youth to Youth spans nearly 15 years as he attended his first conference as a middle school student but continued to come back every year in whatever capacity he could. From youth staff to A-team to adult staff, Dean always found a way to give back to the program that meant so much to him.
The family will release Dean Anthony Mason’s obituary and funeral arrangements at a later date.
