Milliken man who died at Broncos game Monday leaves behind wife, five children

Milliken father, Jason Coy, with three of his children. Coy died Monday while leaving the Denver Broncos game.

There was a moment when Jason Coy had a less-than-jovial expression on his face while giving a friendly greeting to his new neighbors in Milliken a few weeks back.

That's when the neighbors on Wagon Trail Drive in Milliken mentioned that they were Seattle Seahawks fans.

"He had a very disappointed look on his face," Heather West, 30, said, referring to Coy.

Coy, 36, was an ardent Denver Broncos' fan, who had four season tickets and a garage filled with Broncos posters and team memorabilia. On Monday night following the Broncos' game and on his way out of Sports Authority Field at Mile High, he lost his balance, tumbled over a railing and fell 60 feet to his death, according to a GoFundMe posting. Police say Coy had been sitting on the railing before falling.

Coy left behind a wife and five children, ages 11, 8, 5, 2 and 6 months, according to the GoFundMe profile.

"This family has lost an amazing husband, father, provider, and caring man. Jason's smile, laugh, and personality was felt by everyone he met. His family was his life, and while we cannot fill that loss, we can help ease the pain of the financial uncertainty that lies ahead," the GoFundMe profile says.
