Country singer Craig Morgan is mourning the sudden death of his son, Jerry Greer, 19, following a boating accident in Tennessee over the weekend.
The 51-year-old's rep confirmed the teen's passing on Monday hours after emergency responders began searching for him around 4 pm on Sunday.
"The family is grateful for the outpouring of support and requests prayers at this time as they privately mourn this terrible loss," the rep said in a statement to People magazine. "Jerry is survived by parents Craig and Karen Greer, sister Aly Beaird and brother-in-law Ryan Beaird, brother Kyle Greer and fiancée Chelsea Rogers and brother Wyatt Greer."
While no cause of death has been given, Sheriff Chris Davis of the Humphreys County Police Department indicated that Jerry succumbed to injuries sustained while tubing in a local lake.
"It was just as simple as hitting a wave and turning over and not coming back up," the officer shared, adding that the young man was wearing a life jacket at the time.
Our thoughts are with the entire Morgan/Greer family as they grieve this tremendous loss.
