Family issues statement after passing of Jeremy Medina

By Caleb Hutchins Assistant News Director

The family of Jeremy Medina has issued a statement confirming the passing of the Gainesville High School student.

The statement, distributed by Northeast Georgia Health System Tuesday morning, said Medina's heart stopped Monday night. He had been kept on life support after being declared brain dead on December 3.

"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," the statement read. "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."

Medina was a member of the Gainesville High School baseball team. He went into a coma after school officials said he was involved in an accident at the school's batting cages on November 20.
