MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A University of Wisconsin-Madison senior from St. Paul has died just days after being hospitalized for bacterial meningitis.

Henry Mackaman, 21, was an economics and English double major, known for his love of music.

His family chose to remove him from life support today. They’re donating his organs.

The university says meningococcal disease is not highly contagious, adding that there is likely no health risk to others on campus.
