JSU family, it is with a heavy heart that I confirm the death of a JSU student. The loss of a young person is always a devastating circumstance for our campus community. Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time. pic.twitter.com/jPktddkMql

Flynn Brown played football in New Jersey at Mount Olive High School before going off to college. His former coach, Brian O’ Connor, announced his death on Twitter. After Brown graduated from high school in 2019, he played football for Lackawanna College in Scranton, Pennsylvania before beginning college at Jackson State in 2022. He did not play football for the school but had earned a roster spot on the team for the next season. – Steve Sijenyi
My daughter just called me and said they found a boy’s dead body in the trunk of another boy’s car on her college campus. The car was parked in front of her dorms. A young man has been arrested, but the students don’t have any info. This was at JSU.
