Former WSSU Women's Basketball Player Passes Away
WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- The Winston-Salem State University Department of Athletics is sad to announce the passing of former student-athlete, Jillian Rose Charlet.
Charlet, 22, died at the scene of a one vehicle crash early Wednesday morning in Winston-Salem, N.C. She and another passenger, Chloe Claudette Morse, 21, were roommates. They both were passengers in the car. The driver, a non-WSSU male, and Morse were taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment of injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.
Speed and alcohol are considered to be factors in the crash, police said.
No charges have been filed and the investigation is continuing.
Charlet and Morse were seniors at Winston-Salem State University and were scheduled to graduate in May. Charlet was an accounting major from New Washington, Ind., who was scheduled to graduate in May. She played on the WSSU women's basketball team for three years.
Morse is from Sumerduck, Va., and was majoring in management information systems.
Please join us in offering our sympathies to Jillian's family and friends, and in wishing a full and speedy recovery for Choloe.
