Jarred Rome

I am deeply sorry to report the untimely passing of two-time US discus Olympian, Jarred Rome.

A graduate of Marysville-Pilchuck High School, Rome, 42, died in his sleep Saturday morning after being inducted Wednesday evening into the Snohomish County Sports Hall of Fame in Everett, Washington.

Please see Paul Merca's touching tribute to Rome, the Olympian and the remarkable coach, and for quotes from Rome from his Hall of Fame induction.

And from the Everett Herald:

Our deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and athletes.
