Jeremy Huber, a defenseman for the Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team who was found dead in his dorm on Jan. 26, died of pneumonia complicating influenza A, according to the chief medical examiner’s office.
Jeremy Huber, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound freshman who hailed from Las Vegas, was 18.
Bob Huber, Jeremy Huber’s father, wrote in an email that he had not heard anything official and declined to comment.
The Blue Jays have remembered Huber by wearing patches with the No. 19, Huber’s number, on their jerseys and No. 19 decals on their helmets.
Prior to the start and after the end of every home game at Homewood Field, the team has gathered around a blue-colored 19 painted on the turf before their bench and put their arms around each other.
