Colorado Rockies Team President Keli McGregor was found dead Tuesday morning. He was 48.
“Keli was a wonderful person and a highly respected professional whose loss will be felt throughout the entire Denver community,” Broncos Chief Operating Officer Joe Ellis said in a statement. “The Denver Broncos extend their deepest sympathies to Keli’s wife, Lori, their children and the entire Colorado Rockies organization.”
McGregor was selected by the Broncos in the fourth round (110th overall) of the 1985 NFL Draft and played for the club as a rookie. A two-time All-America tight end at Colorado State University, McGregor went on to play for the Indianapolis Colts at Seattle Seahawks in his NFL career.
He joined the Rockies in 1993 and had been with the team since its inception as an MLB expansion team. He became team president in 2001.
The Colorado Rockies released a statement, as well, including a quote from Chairman and CEO Charlie Monfort.
“Words cannot describe the level of shock and disbelief that we all are feeling this morning at the loss of Keli,” Monfort said. “Our thoughts, our prayers are with Lori and the entire family as we all try to cope and understand how such a tragic loss could occur with such a wonderful man.”
