James Madison University honors the legacy and life of Lauren Bernett

On April 26, a Virginia school posted a message on its website saying, “Our hearts are breaking” Lauren Bernett was an outstanding member of JMU’s softball team, and she was also a wonderful ambassador for JMU and the athletic program. As a freshman catcher, she was an integral part of the 2021 Women’s College World Series team.

“College athletics is great because of the people with whom we get to interact every day,” the statement about the 20-year-old sophomore continued. It is a close-knit family. Lauren is a valuable member of JMU Athletics and we will forever consider Lauren a Duke.

The cause of death has not been released publicly. CelebHomes News reached out to the authorities in an effort to get their comments.
