After searching for Jerry Greer all day on Monday, authorities sadly have announced they’ve recovered the body of Craig Morgan’s 19 year-old son.
As previously reported, Greer went missing this past weekend after being involved in a tubing accident on Kentucky Lake in Waverly, Tennessee.
Morgan’s publicist announced Jerry’s death in a prepared statement:
“It is with deep sadness that I am confirming the passing of Jerry Greer, son of country music entertainer Craig Morgan and wife Karen Greer. The Humphreys County Sheriff’s Department recovered his body this evening after a search that began Sunday following a boating accident on Kentucky Lake in Tennessee. A 2016 graduate of Dickson County High School, Jerry planned to play football for Marshall University in the fall.”
Jerry is survived by his mother & father as well as his sister, Aly & brothers Kyle & Wyatt.
