Martin Patrick Dunn, 56, of College Park, MD, passed away at his home on June 15th, 2020. Marty was born in Washington, DC. He grew up in College Park where he attended Northwestern High School. He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from The University of Notre Dame and a Juris Doctorate from The Washington College of Law at American University.

After leaving the SEC, he was a partner at O’Melveny & Myers LLP and most recently was senior counsel at Morrison & Foerster, LLP.
Marty enjoyed gathering people together whether for a Notre Dame Football or Arsenal soccer game, visiting the Outer Banks with family, or spending time in the yard with a homemade playlist in the background. Being nearly a lifetime resident of College Park, Marty was very loyal to his neighborhood and the friendships that he built there. He is remembered as a mentor to many that he worked with throughout his career, and always wanted the best for his people.
