Former EMU student collapses, dies at Detroit marathon

 

From the Detroit Free Press:

Jon Fenlon, 26, of Waterford collapsed at about 9:18 a.m., just after finishing the half-marathon in 1:53:37. Fenlon, whose Facebook page says that he worked at the Warren-based advertising firm Campbell-Ewald and graduated from Eastern Michigan University, had made headlines before, when in 2006 he caught a homerun ball hit by Magglio Ordoñez that sealed the Tigers’ sweep of the Oakland A’s — sending the team to the World Series, said friend Jenny Wroblewski.
