The Colorado State University Pueblo community mourns the loss of CSU Pueblo student-athlete Jillian Abrian who succumbed to injuries from a traffic accident on Saturday, Sept. 11. Two other CSU Pueblo students were involved.

One student was treated for injuries and released, and the other remains in critical condition. The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office, which responded to the incident in the county, is in contact with CSU Pueblo officials, and updates will be shared as more information becomes available.

Jillian was in her third year at CSU Pueblo, pursuing a degree in Business Administration, and a member of the Women’s Swimming and Diving team. Jillian was from Orange County, California.

More information will be shared in the coming days about a campus-wide vigil or service. Counseling services for students will be available in Crestone Hall today at 6 p.m.

Losing a member of the Pack is always difficult. If you are in need of access to counseling services, the CSU Pueblo Counseling Center is available for students and employees both on-site and online. Additionally, counseling is available for walk-in appointments and facilitated group sessions in CSU Pueblo’s Center for Integrated Health and Human Inquiry (CIHHI).

The CSU Pueblo Counseling Center is available 24 hours a day at 719-549-2838.
