Katie Meyer, a 22-year-old soccer player, had shared a bunch of heartwarming photos with her father on social media, only a few weeks before her death. The Stanford soccer star had shared the pictures on social media to promote her weekly talk show called Be The Mentality, where she would be seen talking with different people. The Stanford soccer goalie’s death has been ruled self-inflicted. The Santa Clara County medical examiner found no indication of foul play.

“Katie was extraordinarily committed to everything and everyone in her world,” Stanford vice provost for student affairs Susie Brubaker-Cole and athletic director Bernard Muir said in a message on the university’s communications site.

Who were Katie Meyer's parents?

Katie was named Katie Diane Meyer by her parents — father Steven and mother Gina. She was born on January 20, 2000, in Burbank, California. Katie was the second child to her parents after her sister Samantha Meyer. She also has a younger sister called Sinena Meyer.  “There are no words,” Katie’s sister, Samantha, wrote Wednesday, March 2, in an Instagram post. “Thank you for all the kindness extended to my family. I’m not ready to post anything big yet. We are broken hearted and love Kat so much.”

According to sources who knew Katie, she was very close to her parents. Katie and her family both happened to be very private about their lives. Not much is known about Katie's parents and their family. 

In the weeks before her death, Katie shared many photos with her father on social media to promote 'Be The Mentality', a weekly talk show where she had conversations with different people.

The first episode of Be The Mentality was titled Girl Dad. In the episode, Katie talks with her father Steven. This has been the only episode of the show that was aired. No other episodes came into being due to Katie's sudden demise, the proper circumstances of which remain unknown so far. In more cases of mysterious deaths, in February this year, Ciaya Jordan Whetstone, a UNO student turned up dead in hospital after an Uber ride. Elizabeth Howell, a SUNY Potsdam music education student was shot dead on a street just off campus by a man with no affiliation with the school.

"Her friends describe her as a larger-than-life team player in all her pursuits, from choosing an academic discipline she said ‘changed my perspective on the world and the very important challenges that we need to work together to overcome’ to the passion she brought to the Cardinal women’s soccer program and to women’s sports in general. Katie was a bright shining line for so many on the field and in our community. Please join us in offering our deepest condolences to her parents and sisters.
