San Jacinto College student honored at Washington Nationals game after sudden death

WASHINGTON (KTRK) -- A San Jacinto College student was honored at a Washington Nationals game after the 18-year-old unexpectedly died.

Katelyn Davis was working in Washington D.C. for the Washington Times on a summer internship.

She had a dream of becoming a sports broadcaster or a sideline reporter. Her family said she passed away in her sleep Saturday. They say she had been battling seizures for years.

Before Monday's game, the Nationals recognized Davis, and placed a bouquet of pink flowers in the stadium's reporter's booth.

The family has created a GoFundMe account to help pay for expenses to bring her home to Houston and bury her. So far, it's raised more than $14,000.

"We want to share her life with as many people as possible," said Katelyn's father, Kevin Davis.
