Eli Manning was Jared Lorenzen’s teammate on the New York Giants from 2004-07. He released this statement to Matt Jones on Jared’s passing.

“Jared was a great teammate and friend. We competed against each other in college and came to the Giants together in 2004. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I will always remember his competitive spirit and his good nature. Jared has left us all way too soon.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who knew and loved Jared. It’s hard to come up with words right now, but he was a special, special guy who we will miss very much.

    I never met him but this hurts. He was literally a larger than life kind of guy. I guess I just can’t help but ask myself why? This seems so unnecessary. It is almost like a suicide. Why couldn’t he manage his weight? He was a great athlete….. you would think he could harness that into actually being healthy.

      Those who have never battled weight issues just can’t understand. Why can’t an alcoholic “manage” his/her drinking? Why can’t someone with depression better “manage” their mood? Obesity is a disease that is very difficult to overcome and unfortunately a battle that way too many like Jared can’t win.

Obesity is a similar disease that many like Jared fight but just can’t win. Might want to try walking in someone else’s shoes before thinking you have the answers duuuuuuude!

      Thank you Biggie. I was not trying to be condisending at all. I’m grieving like everybody else here. I will admit I just don’t understand. Sorry if I offended people.

    I’ve had a really bad feeling about this since the day he was admitted. Just so sad.

      I did, too. Especially with the family being so hush about it!
