A 52-year-old Larimer County man who contracted meningitis during a pick-up hockey game has died.
The Coloradoan in Fort Collins reports that Bill Jubert of Bellvue died Monday after a series of strokes. Joy Jubert says her husband had recently been diagnosed with vasculitis, an inflammation of blood vessels. Joy Jubert says there was probably a connection to the meningitis, which her husband contracted during a hockey game in June at a Fort Collins recreation center.
Jubert is the third person who played in the game to die after contracting meningitis. He was hospitalized in a Great Falls, Mont., hospital in June after getting ill on vacation.
Brian Wormus, 29, and Nick Smith, 28, both died in June.
