Very early this morning I received a call that no young coach or gym director ever expects to get . I was told that a former athlete of mine, one of my favorite kids I have ever coached or had the privilege of knowing, tragically passed away in a car accident last night. The shock, disbelief and heartache I feel for her and her family is unlike anything I have ever felt – because no one should ever have to say goodbye to someone so young and with so much more life to live.Jada Martins embodied all the reasons why I love what I do and why I have such a passion for mentoring and working with kids and teenagers. Jada defined the word kindness. She constantly worked hard to better herself while always quietly , but constantly , encouraging every teammate she had . She had no sense of ego or putting oneself before others – yet when she took to the competition floor she transformed into this shining star of a performer whose exceptional talent and energy was a spectacle to witness. Jada was a role model for every young athlete that came to know her and look up to her and she displayed a level of maturity, intelligence and grace that most adults many times her age would envy.I will miss so many of the incredible qualities that Jada possessed. But above all else, I will miss the the overwhelming gratitude I felt and still feel – for teaching me that I could be just as inspired and Learn just as much from a child as they ever could from me.
Rest peacefully Jada – and again thank you from the bottom of my heart.
