By now, many of you have heard that a man had fallen to his death at the stadium on Sunday. Officials said the man, Jason Coy of Loveland, was sitting on a railing in a stairwell on the north side of the stadium just after the game ended about 9:45 p.m. when he fell more than sixty feet.

"The Denver Broncos are extremely saddened to learn that Jason Coy, the fan who fell over a stairwell railing at Monday night’s game, has passed away," the Broncos said in a statement. "Along with Stadium Management Company, we extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to his family and friends.

He was a father of five children aged six months to 11 years. According to the GoFundMe page setup to help support his family described Coy as, " an amazing husband, father, provider, and caring man. Jason's smile, laugh, and personality was felt by everyone he met. His family was his life, and while we cannot fill that loss, we can help ease the pain of the financial uncertainty that lies ahead."

The family insisted that no heavy alcohol use was involved, but the police will continue to investigate other factors that may be included in the most recent deadly fall.

"It’s unclear to us right now whether there were drugs or alcohol involved. That would be part of the medical examiner’s investigation into this matter," said Denver Police Department spokesman Doug Schepman.

For now a young family of five kids needs all the help they can get from the community. Any help you can provide will be much appreciated.
