Daniel Jones, a kineseology major and Foul Play band member at Tarleton State University, died Wednesday. Although no official police records have confirmed his death, a mass email was sent to Tarleton faculty, staff and students at 3:13 p.m. The email said, “It is with deep regret that we report the death of Daniel Jones, a kinesiology major from Crowley, Texas. Daniel was a member of the Tarleton State Marching Band, Foul Play and Delta Chi fraternity.”
Communications Department Head Dr. Charlie Howard announced to fellow faculty members that Jones died after having a seizure during a communications class Wednesday morning. Jones’ Facebook page also has multiple condolence posts from friends.
“May you rest in peace, Daniel,” posts one of Jones’ Facebook friends, Savannah Arabella. “God bless both you and your family.”
About 10 a.m. Wednesday, paramedics and police officers were seen entering the O.A. Grant Humanities building. They were later seen exiting with a student on a stretcher, performing CPR on the student.
Tarleton Police Chief Matt Welch said the paramedics were “doing CPR on the student when they left campus.”
