Jerry Greer, Son of Craig Morgan, Dead at 19 Following Water Tubing Accident

Jerry Greer, one of Craig Morgan‘s sons, has died following a water tubing accident on Sunday (July 10). The 19-year-old’s body was recovered late on Monday (July 11), according to WSMV, 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, after 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.

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.

“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.”

Greer’s funeral arrangements are pending.
