Michael Hudson McCort

Hudson McCort, 27, of Tallahassee and New Orleans passed away early Saturday, July 31, 2010. He died in a single vehicle accident in New Orleans.

Hudson graduated from Leon High School and was a four-year member of the Leon High rowing team. After high school, Hudson completed his undergraduate studies at Emory University, in Atlanta, where he majored in psychology, played rugby and became a member of the Phi Theta Delta fraternity. After Emory, Hudson taught English to students in Seoul, Korea and learned much of Asian cultures through his travels during that time. He returned to Washington, D.C. to work at the nonprofit periodical Science as manager of their circulation department as he prepared for law school. In 2007, Hudson began Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, concentrating in Maritime law. Noting the recent tragedies in that area, Hudson was eager to be a part of the rebuilding of New Orleans and quickly immersed himself in the spirit of the city. Hudson graduated in May 2010, a celebration his family attended with great pride.

Hudson is survived by his parents, Bill and Laurie McCort; his sister, Emily (McCort) Josephsohn and her husband, Nathan; his brother, John McCort and his grandparents, Campbell and Mary Lou Miller.

A service honoring Hudson’s life will be held Saturday, August 7, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. at Christ Presbyterian Church, 2317 Bannerman Rd. in Tallahassee, FL.

Hudson was well known for his kindness, generosity, sense of humor and gregarious personality. He embraced the people and communities around him. And by doing so, he encouraged others to live in a similar fashion; to truly live life to its fullest. In keeping with his hopes for the rebuilding and rejuvenation of New Orleans, Hudson’s family asks that, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to Habitat for Humanity at



Please note A number of friends from NY and New Orleans have made plans to stay together at the Cabot Lodge (850 386 7500). Please pass this information along to anyone who wishes to attend.

For those of you not able to make the funeral, we will be holding an independent event in NY to honor Hudson.
