John Comstock

John Comstock, a survivor of the 1999 Aggie Bonfire collapse, says he hopes his story will help others overcome their tragedies.

Remembering Bonfire: John Comstock, the last survivor pulled from the Bonfire collapse on Nov. 18, 1999, said he appreciates the chance to speak to groups about his journey from despair to normalcy. “I’ve felt like if my story can help somebody else — if it can help just one person at a school or in a crowd — then it’s worth it,” he said.
