Passing of former ODU coach, wrestler and former local HS coach Jamie Kelly
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.

Obit & Memorial information: https://www.omanfh.com/obituaries/Jamie-...ituaryInfo

Contributions the memorial fund can be made at http://www.jkmemorialfund.com

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.

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.

Gone way too soon. I'll be reaching out to GTS to have him added to the Jersey Retired page.

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.
