Jerry Greer, the son of country music singer Craig Morgan, has died. He was only 19 years-old. The family is requesting friends and fas to pray for them during this difficult time.
Jerry went missing after going water tubing on July 10th. The 19-year-old's body was recovered late on Monday (July 11) following a search that began on Sunday afternoon. Search parties began combing Kentucky Lake near Mason's Boat Dock and Marina in Waverly, Tenn., at about 4PM on Sunday. Greer and a friend had an accident while tubing. Both Greer and his friend were wearing life jackets when they fell into the water, but Greer never resurfaced.
Five boats worked the water overnight, and a full-scale search resumed early Monday morning; on Monday, about 20-30 boats were involved in the search. Humphreys County and Dickson County first responders, the Dickson County Underwater Search and Recovery team, the Tennessee City Volunteer Fire Department, the City of Dickson Fire Department, the Tennessee Highway Patrol and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency were all taking part.
"The family is grateful for the outpouring of support," a statement from Morgan's reps reads in part, "and requests prayers at this time as they privately mourn this terrible loss."
Jerry Greer recently graduated from Dickson County High School and planned to play football for Marshall University in the fall. He is survived by his parents, Morgan and wife Karen; sister Aly and brother-in-law Ryan; brother Kyle and his fiancee Chelsea; and brother Wyatt.
