Police have upgraded the charge for a woman suspected of causing the death of a popular assistant dean at Texas Christian University.

Jamie Dulle, 41, was driving west in the 2200 block of West Rosedale Street on March 10 when her vehicle was struck from the rear about 3:30 a.m., according to police.

The force of the crash caused Dulle’s vehicle to slam into a utility pole at Rosedale Avenue and Forest Park Boulevard, police said.

Dulle was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital, where she was pronounced dead about 11:15 a.m. the next day, according to police.

The woman driving the other vehicle that was involved, Cristen Hamilton, 33, was arrested after the crash and was facing a charge of intoxication assault, police said.

Hamilton now faces an upgraded charge of intoxication manslaughter, after an arrest Thursday, according to a police report.

An intoxication assault conviction carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years while an intoxication manslaughter conviction carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years, according to the Texas Penal Code.

Dulle was alone in her vehicle and no one else was injured in the wreck, police said.

Dulle oversaw Student Advocacy, Crisis Response, and the Women’s Education Program, according to TCU’s website.

In 2010, Dulle’s husband died from brain cancer, leaving her to raise their sons, Boston and Braylen, according to reporting by TCU 360.com.

Friends said she promised her husband she would raise their sons while fulfilling her own dreams.

Dulle earned her doctorate in education in December after defending her dissertation focused on student-athletes and their help-seeking behavior, the TCU story said.
