‘His heart stopped last night…(he) will always be in God’s hands’; injured GHS baseball player dies

Jeremy Medina, the Gainesville High School (GHS) baseball player injured in a freak accident during a practice session last month died early Tuesday, the family says. Just last week, doctors announced that the young man, who had dreams of playing college and professional baseball, was brain dead. At the same time, his family said his organs would be donated.

The announcement of his death came Tuesday morning in a statement shared through the Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) where he had been treated since the accident:

“Following last week’s press conference and decision to support Jeremy’s wish for organ donation, we began the process of seeking a visa for his grandmother so she could travel to be with us for the honor walk. Sadly, his heart stopped last night about an hour before grandma arrived.

We know Jeremy was and will always be in God’s hands and we will see him soon. We are grateful for all the prayers and support over the last three weeks, and we appreciate everyone’s understanding as we take time now to be with our family.

Any further information about Jeremy Medina from his family will first be announced and shared through the following platforms;
