Omogbo Family Assistance Fund
CSU student-athlete Emmanuel Omogbo suffered the tragic loss of his parents and 2-year-old niece and nephew the morning of January 19th in a house fire in Maryland.
“This is absolutely heartbreaking for Emmanuel, his family and for all of us that know him,” Colorado State University coach Larry Eustachy said in a statement issued by the school. “There are no words to describe how it felt to hear this terrible news earlier today. They were a beautiful family that I enjoyed getting to know. The entire Colorado State men’s basketball team, athletic program and university will be there to support and help Emmanuel in any way we can through this incredibly tough time in his life.”
If you would like to support Emmanuel during this time, please consider making a donation. Funds collected will be used for funeral, medical, temporary housing, or related expenses. Funds raised in excess of the support needed for those expenses will be donated to a charitable cause, per NCAA bylaws.
This GoFundMe Campaign was created by Colorado State University Department of Athletics, and donations submitted through this page are compliant per NCAA bylaws.
Several news organizations have shared more of this story, with Emmanuel’s assistance.
