MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - The University of South Alabama community is mourning the loss of one of their own.
Friends of USA sophomore Jordan Greer said she passed away Tuesday, March 26, due to a medical emergency after she collapsed at a USA intramural game last week.
The medical cause of death had not yet been released.
In honor and remembrance of Greer and the life she lived, a candlelight memorial service will be held at the USA bell tower March 27 at 6 p.m.
Those know knew Greer said they'll always remember her.
"She was the most positive person I think I've ever known. She was always smiling, she has a huge smile, just goofy and really fun to be around absolutely a positive spirit," a friend of Greer's, Sandra Huynh said.
Huynh said she attended Gautier High School with Greer where she played basketball.
And when it was time to go to college, Huynh said Greer was filled with excitement.
"She loved USA. It was such a joy to see her to come to orientation that summer and she would call me and be like hey where do I go?"
Huynh said the USA community has pulled together and she's not surprised by the outpouring of love.
Greer's smile and positive spirit will live on in memories but also in the hearts of those who knew her as some say: "to live in hearts we leave behind is not to die."
