BALTIMORE, MD - The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse program and members of the University community are mourning the loss of freshman defenseman Jeremy Huber. Huber died in his room on campus on Sunday night (January 25-26). Police, who investigated as a matter of standard procedure, say preliminarily they have not found any evidence of a crime.
"We are stunned and deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Jeremy Huber," Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse coach Dave Pietramala stated. "Jeremy was a wonderful young man who was extremely well-liked by his teammates and the members of our lacrosse family. He was a considerate, bright young man that loved being a part of our lacrosse program. He was an outstanding representative of Johns Hopkins University and words cannot adequately express the loss we are feeling right now. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family as we all try to work through this difficult time."
A native of Las Vegas, Huber was the salutatorian of his graduating class at West Career and Technical High School. He was a four-time all-state selection in lacrosse and helped the team win a pair of state championships.
Huber was enrolled in Johns Hopkins' Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and was interested in majoring in cognitive science.
