It is with heavy hearts that we share with our GCR family we have lost a great champion in the sport of running.
Coach, father, husband and mentor, Jeff Sommer of Estero High School passed away last Saturday while cheering on his 4X800 girls relay team who won the state title with a record-breaking time!
Coach Sommer lived, slept and loved running. He encouraged and mentored thousands of student athletes over the last 27 years in southwest Florida and his legacy will live on for many decades to come.
Thank you Coach!
