The principal of Corona del Mar Middle & High School in Newport Beach, Calif., issued a statement on the death of University of Arizona student Erin Jones.

In the statement, principal Jake Haley said he was at a loss for words about the tragic loss of life.

"Erin was a well-known student on the Corona del Mar Campus and the ripple effect of the loss will be felt by many, especially our soccer community where Erin was an active member. We are providing a space of gathering on campus this week for athletes and others who are directly impacted by the loss of Erin."
