PANAMA CITY -- Peace Corps volunteer and Broomfield resident Cody Oser died over the weekend in Panama, the Peace Corps said in a statement.

Oser, 24, was a graduate of Broomfield High School and Colorado State University, where he earned a degree in civil engineering.

In a statement, the Peace Corps confirmed Oser died Saturday in the Comarca Ngabe Bugle region of Panama. His body was found in a stream.

“Cody’s enthusiasm for helping others and knack for problem solving were remarkable and are a few of the many reasons he was so well-liked among fellow volunteers and in his community,” acting director Sheila Crowley said.

"His passing is a profound loss for the Peace Corps community as we mourn along with his family and friends."

ABC News reports that it is unknown how Oser died and that his death is still under investigation.

Reports say he had no visible wounds and still had all his personal belongings on him.

Oser is survived by his parents, Lynnette and Steven Oser; his brother and sister-in-law, Gabriel and Joanna Oser; and his sister and brother-in-law, Abbe and Jamie Gilroy.
