Willamston boys basketball coach Jason Bauer has died following his more than two year battle with brain cancer.

Bauer helped lead one of the area's most successful high school boys basketball programs in Mid-Michigan during his time on the bench with the Williamston Hornets, before stepping away in March of 2016. The Hornets played into the Class B state semifinal game in 2016.

Standing at 6 foot-8 inches tall, Bauer played college basketball at Grand Valley State.

The Williamston boys basketball Twitter handle tweeted a photo of Bauer and said: " We lost our gentle giant today. His family lost a tremendous father, husband, brother and son. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. You will always be on the sideline with us.

Rest in Peace J.
