Jamie Kelly, a 1998 NCAA national qualifier for Old Dominion and a former assistant coach, passed away on Tuesday at age 44.

JK was a good friend and a better person. He was a Great Bridge alum, where he wrestled for current ODU coach Steve Martin, then wrestled for local product Gray Simons at ODU before coaching at Cox H.S. in Virginia Beach. He returned to ODU in the 2003-04 season as an assistant coach with Jeff Rusak in Simons' final season at the helm.

Jamie also posted on this board frequently as well, his fandom of ODU football and wrestling as well as the Pittsburgh Steelers was apparent.

Rough day all around for the local wrestling community as Jamie was friends with so many folks because he was such a great human being.
RIP odusteeler
So vary sad. I hope the Monarch community will rise up and help a fellow Monarch !
I didn't know he was ODUSteeler. I have a lot of Great Bridge friends sharing his fundraiser over the last few days. RIP odusteeler =[
I would add in addition to being a great coach he was also a great teacher at Cox HS. He will be sadly missed by his former students, wrestlers and the faculty of Cox.
Damn, I remember the name ODUSteeler. Awful news.
Gone way too soon. I'll be reaching out to GTS to have him added to the Jersey Retired page.
RIP Jamie. Really sad to lose a Monarch and a Steeler fan. Thoughts and Prayers for his family.
He was an insightful poster and seemed like a wonderful person. Condolences to all mourning this loss.
Huge contributor and a genuinely nice guy
My sympathies go out to the family.
Jersey retired.

Thx gts
Damn, I didn't know Jamie was ODUSteeler. RIP
He graduated with my sister and at least one other poster here that I know of as well. I've known him 25+ years.

Very sad.
Finally got home and prepared the memorial ODU episode for Jamie Kelly.
