Quinn was 6’5” and about to enter grade 11 at Northern Secondary School in the Eglinton Ave. E. and Mount Pleasant Ave. area.
“He had some talent and appeared to be playing and competing with the best of them,” said Ketchum. “My heart goes out to him and his family.”
There were about 130 boys at the overnight camp, including a childhood friend of Quinn’s. The Aspen School District brought school counsellors in for the other campers Monday evening and those counsellors will be available for the rest of the week, said superintendent John Maloy. The camp will continue as scheduled, until Thursday afternoon.
“They’re doing as good as they could possibly do given that it’s such a tragic circumstance,” said Ketchum of the other children who were on the court when Quinn collapsed.
The cause of death was still unknown Tuesday and the Pitkin County Coroners Office announced it would be performing an autopsy.
Quinn was an only child and his mother Molly’s best friend. She was too distraught to speak with the media while she waited in Toronto for her son’s body to be flown back from Colorado.
“He was a good kid and loved his mom,” said his aunt. “When he exhaled, she inhaled.”
Quinn played basketball, football and the saxophone, she added, and enjoyed building model bicycles.
