The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team played the 2015 season in honor of Jeremy Huber, a freshman defenseman who passed away suddenly on January 26 - less than two weeks before the 2015 season opener. The team wore commemorative patches on its uniforms and stickers on its helmets throughout the 2015 season, while Huber's #19 was painted on Homewood Field right in front of the team's bench area and remained there throughout the season. Huber's #19 jersey will not be issued again until his class graduates in 2018.

A scholarship has been established within the Peabody Conservatory in support of a student pursuing training as a pianist, something that Jeremy was also passionate about. A goal of raising $100,000 has been established. Click here to contribute to the scholarship fund.
