It is with a heavy heart that we learn of the death of one of our coaches. Jeremy Eschelbacher passed away suddenly on 8/17/15. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Betsy, his daughter Merri, and sons, Will, Olie and Eliot. Jeremy was a teacher at Grafton High School, an avid runner and sports fan. He was a dedicated and enthusiastic coach for the Boys U10 soccer team for the last 2 years. The team thrived under his leadership. He will be greatly missed in our community. http://www.legacy.com/guestbooks/telegram/jeremy-eschelbacher-condolences/175536433?cid=full
