An obituary shared by Bryant Funeral Home in East Setauket, New York states that Kaminska "passed away unexpectedly on the morning of Monday, May 30, 2022," but does not include a specific cause of death.

"Aidan was known for his infectious smile, being a good friend, and a tremendous athlete," the obituary states.

The UMass athletics department sent condolences to Kaminska's "family, friends, teammates and coaches" in a news release announcing his death on Wednesday (June 1).

"Massachusetts athletics is saddened to announce the loss of Aidan Kaminska, a men's lacrosse student-athlete who passed away on Monday, May 30," the athletics department wrote. "Kaminska, a communications major from Port Jefferson, N.Y., was a sophomore midfielder for the Minutemen. He was 19 years old."

"University resources are available for members of the UMass community to utilize during this challenging time," the department added.
